Today Father Martin presided at the Parish Mass and Father Mervyn concelebrated and preached. Father Mervyn pointed out that Solemnity of All Saints acknowledges all those people who have borne faithful witness, led lives of sanctity and holiness but who are unrecognised by the church, sometimes because the church was not even aware of theme. He pointed out that we are all called to be saints; St. Paul addresses his letter to the Romans: To all God's beloved in Rome, who are called to be saints. And in his Epistle to the Ephesians he calls Christians fellow citizens with the saints. He posed the question:have you ever met a saint and suggested that he had and related a little about three of them.
Following coffee and refreshments including a special cake made by Prisca to celebrate the Baptism of her and Russell’s daughter Amber, we returned to church for the actual Baptism of Amber. Yesterday Father Martin baptised Reece. Please remember Amber and Reece. their parents and Godparents in your prayers.
