Notices for Week of 16 April 2023

Notices: Easter 2, 16 April 2023

Good day dear friends, 

In the Gospel for this Sunday we will hear of Jesus breathing the Holy Spirit into the disciples, who are locked up in that Upper Room in fear. In order to live a life that is more fully conscious and free and connected to the eternal and emerging Life of God – that is, in order for us to be more fully in Love – we have to learn to open up our hearts and to breathe deeply of the life giving Spirit of God. 


Father Gerald+

For those joining us on-line, we invite you to use this prayer for Spiritual Communion: 

Lord Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the Holy Sacrament. However, since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, I beseech you to come spiritually into my heart. I unite myself with you, and embrace you with all the affections of my soul. Let me never be separated from you. Let me live and die in your love. Amen.
