Notices for Week of 28 May 2023

Notices: Pentecost, 28 May 2023

Good day dear friends,

This Sunday is the feast of Pentecost, the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Church and upon the world. Or another way of saying this: the great “opening up” to the Spirit within. To follow the path of Jesus, the Way of Love, is to open up to the Divine life, the Love that is already within you. 

Pentecost is about being overwhelmed by the Love of God, and about being overwhelmed with Love for God and for others. Let our hearts catch on fire, and may we be consumed with love for all.


Father Gerald+

A new six week Revive course has begun, “Called for Ministry.” Please keep this important discipling ministry in your prayer. 

“Revive” is a program that helps equip lay leaders to be spiritual leaders. The participants will learn about themselves and discern their life’s calling; explore their faith journey and enter into a relationship with God; enjoy a sense of community and deepened relationships with peers; gain confidence with prayer, scripture, and spiritual leadership; and discern gifts for their calling to serve God’s world. Please pray for those participating in this program this spring.
