Centenary Parish Mission
Sat 3rd December – Sun 11th December 2005
By Fr John Edwards S.J.
Who today will be introducing himself and commentating on all Masses.

We are very pleased and lucky to be able to announce that Fr John Edwards, the very sought after preacher will be leading our Centenary Advent Mission next month. Fr John gets booked up about two years in advance. In early 2004 we were lucky that he had these dates free and we snapped him up!

A Mission is a chance for all to ‘retreat’ a little from the daily routine and attempt to listen a little more intently to what God is currently saying to us, to discern the direction he is currently prompting you in. For He is speaking to you and prompting you through Mary, His Saints and also those around you. We do need to create ways of listening and discerning.

To this end Fr John will be preaching at Masses on the two Sundays. On the days in between he will be leading an hour long Morning (9:30 am) and Evening (6:30 pm) Mission Service, ending with Holy Mass (at 10:25 am and 7:25 p.m.)

At these services he will lead us in reflection and prayer concerning the following subjects:
Monday: Is our religion true?
Tuesday: Repentance: Why go to Confession?
Wednesday: Our Lady
Thursday: Union with God.: Grace.
Friday: Our Dead.

Our Young people will be involved in various ways. There will be a pre-First Communion age retreat on the morning of Saturday 3rd and a Family service on the morning of Saturday 10th. Members of our Youth Club and Youth SVP will perform Drama and dancing at the Tuesday evening service (6th).

- There will be a Service for the Sick with Sacramental Anointing @ 4pm Sat 10th
- There will be confessions after each Mass during the Mission.
- Leaflets will be shortly available.
- Please put this great opportunity for growth into your dairy.
