Becoming a Catholic


From the Bishop......

As the year draws to a close we look both backwards and forwards. Globally it has been a very mixed year. From where we are we can see how fortunate we are when we consider the many problems around the world, for example: Africa and the Ebola crisis, the Ukraine, Syria and the Middle East with wars and conflicts. 

Bishop McGuckinEven locally we shouldn’t become so self-absorbed that we overlook the plight of many in our area who continue to struggle because of drought and other difficulties. Our preoccupation at this time might be what we have to do in preparation for Christmas: who do we have to buy presents for? What do we expect to receive in the way of presents? What will we eat at Christmas and where will we go during the holidays?  May we be outward thinking and be considering practical ways in which we could be assisting others.

CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2014
Each year the Christmas Collection is shared between St Vincent de Paul and a special project ‘beyond’ the Diocese. This year we support people and families struggling with Ebola in Sierra Leone. Our small contribution will be part of the huge local effort to offer compassionate care to victims of the disease and their families and to help reduce infection at the source. Please give generously to this year’s appeal.
