Bricks were purchased and installed in the Brighton Memorial Garden at St Joan of Arc this week.
We recall in prayer all those who have departed in hope that they may now rest in the sleep of peace. Please continue to pray for the souls of those whose remains are buried in our memorial garden. An upcoming Spring Market will fundraise towards the cost on 24 September.
Hate and anger lead to death; love and forgiveness to the kingdom.
Ps 102:1-4. 9-12. R. v.8
(R.) The Lord is kind and merciful; slow to anger and rich in compassion.
Christ is Lord of the living and the dead.
I give you a new commandment: love one another as I have loved you. Alleluia!
Parable of the official who, receiving mercy, does not show it to others.
