Day Trip to Pitlochry 68 people

of ages and mix of parishioners. The day concluded with

School Holiday Once more our
schools come to an end of another scholastic year! We
extend our warmest congratulations to all the work accomplished
by our students & staff. Rest & recreation are
good for the soul! We all need a break or we become dull.
In the bible, the Sabbath was to provide a boundary, to
prevent life from becoming just work &more work. Recreation
means to recreate oneself again. It is about recreating
that space in our lives where we realize that there is
more to life than doing, getting & having. Sometimes
we have to force ourselves to finding that space. We don’t
have to travel anywhere to find it and it doesn’t
have to cost. So, whatever you do, come back refreshed…if
not for your sake, then ours! Also some of our parents
and children may consider coming to one or two of our
week day Masses during the summer break.
A Prayer for the Holidays Lord,
God, help us to remember that you made us for rest &
peace in the eternal sunshine of your love. To love one
another, as a family, in communion of your deep mystery
as Father, Son & Holy Spirit, is our eternal destiny.
We thank you for this holiday time. May we stay unified
in charity, enjoy your creation & grow closer to you
in prayer, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Summer Newsletter Will be suspended
until Aug 13th. The times of Masses will remain the same
