Message from Fr Michael Moynihan
Dear Parishioners
Just as there are four seasons in the year there are different seasons in the Church’s year as well.
Advent helps us prepare for Christmas, Christmastide helps us celebrate the birth of Christ, Lent helps us to prepare for Easter and Eastertide is the time we hear about the stories of the Resurrection and its impact on the early followers of Christ.  The remainder of
the year is known as Ordinary time. 
In recent years Pope Francis has set aside the time between September 1st and October 4th as the Season of Creation. The first Sunday of September was the first Sunday in the Season of Creation, the time set aside by the church to both celebrate the gift of all God’s creation in our Common Home and, reflect on our role in caring for it. This year’s theme is a strong call to “Listen to the Voice of Creation”. We know, only too well, that we are at a crucial time for our common home with both climate change and biodiversity loss already impacting the lives of many people, their livelihoods and all life.
We are encouraged to ask ourselves –  As Christians, how are we responding to these moral and ethical challenges? Do we
recognise that like Moses in the story of the burning bush, we too are standing
on “holy ground”? Of course this call is not new and was put strongly to us by Pope Francis in his letter called Caring for Our  Common Home…Laudato Si’ nearly 7 years ago now! And how fitting that in today’s gospel, ‘Jesus turns around’ and asks us do we really want to be ‘his disciples’, his dedicated followers, to carry the cross? It’s a pretty big ask!

We all have our own immediate responsibilities, family, farm, work, school, illnesses, sadnesses, so many other entanglements. We are sometimes lost in the ‘big crowd of followers’, living our lives, rushing around from one engagement to the next and now we are being asked to carry a cross on top of all this! Who is going to sign up for that, I ask you?
But we sign up for training for football and different sports, years of primary school then more in secondary school, degrees and further education courses, we sign contracts and some go as far as life commitment in marriage. So it seems that we can make commitments.
Now this Season of Creation can we commit or sign up to protecting our actual home place, Our Common Home, the precious blue green planet lovingly created by God as a home for all creation? Can we respond to the threat of a total climate breakdown and devastating biodiversity loss? Are we willing to sign up to change our way of life, how we heat our homes, travel, farm, garden and even shop and eat? These are huge asks. 
But this is something that we can embrace with joy and no doubt some pain too as we leave behind old ways of being. Joy can come as we work with Jesus and other dedicated followers in our communities to co- create a new and transformed Common Home, where farmers can feed their families, indigenous peoples can live in their home place, people in cities breathe clean air and all of us can have clean and safe drinking water and of course where nature and all God’s creatures can thrive.
Let us continue pray together and ask for the Holy Spirit to guide us as we begin our celebration of the Season of creation and
take steps, no matter how small, to live in harmony with all of God’s creation, as we learn to walk more gently on Gods ‘holy ground’

I wish you all God’s blessings at this time and the time ahead.

Fr Michael

Prayers of  The Rosary

“Since the prayers of the Rosary come from such excellent sources — from Our Lord Himself, from inspired Scripture, and from the Church — it is not surprising that the Rosary is so dear to our Blessed Mother and so powerful with heaven”
