Today Father Mervyn presided at the Parish Mass, preached and led our Intercessions. Father Mervyn took as his text part of the Letter to the Hebrews which formed our second reading: “surrounded by such a cloud of witnesses” He pointed out that the witnesses are the Communion of Saints which include people from every nation and, of course, people who have been worshippers at St. Augustine’s, people who have served here faithfully. We are grateful to those who gave themselves for us. No one compelled them, no one forced them, but they freely gave their time, abilities and financial resources. It is because of their faithful witness that we have our parish today. As their successors it is our responsibility to "persevere in running the race" with our eyes fixed on Jesus, through the Sacraments but especially through receiving Him at Mass.
