Thought from Fr. Colm - 1st November

We are now in the season of Remembrance. There are many ways to help us remember. In faith, we have a real privilege and strength. We have the Mass, at which the dead are always given a special mention. The Blessed Sacrament is the Eucharist and is there for all of us to avail daily. We can come to St. Godric's in quiet remembrance, pray for our loved ones. There will be reminders at the altar of those who died in War, but there are candles to light, prayers to pray and staying in the silence of our own thoughts and memories of those we fondly remember, and perhaps more challenging, remembering those who still need healing of relationship. All a part of this wonderful time of year.
