Congratulations to the 41 children who were Confirmed and had their First Holy Communion last Sunday in Morrinsville. It was a big day for everyone, including myself. We express our gratitude once again to the catechists who generously shared their time, talent and even treasures to the children in their faith-journey through the Sacramental Programme—Em, Dolores, Joan ,Michael, Paul and Wendy.

We offer our prayerful condolences to the family of Nancy Aden who passed away last weekend. May the Lord grant Nancy eternal rest, and comfort to her bereaved family.

The priests of Hamilton Diocese will be having the annual Clergy School on July 3-6 July in Rotorua. So there will be no Mass on that week.

Next weekend (1-2 July) is the ‘Peter’s Pence’ collection, an opportunity for us to financially support the charitable and humanitarian work of Pope Francis. The collection also supports the important pastoral offices which enable the Holy Father to carry out his work including the Pontifical Councils for Justice and Peace, Laity, Family and Life, and the promotion of Christian Unity, to name just a few. Let us be generous in supporting this annual collection and please continue to pray for Pope Francis and his intentions.

Blessings,

Fr JeLo
