Our Lady of Grace Conference

Meeting of Thursday 25/09/2014

Since our last meeting on 11/09/2014 our Vincentians have undertaken a total of 11 visits to people in the local community, helping with shopping and paying bills.  A grant was also given to a family in need.

A short discussion took place concerning the final arrangements for the annual mass and party for the sick and housebound on Saturday 27/09/2014. 

New members are always welcome, meetings are held on alternate Thursdays at OLOG presbytery.  You can help in many ways including visiting the sick and housebound, befriending the lonely, providing transport or offering prayers.  Why not contact the presbytery on 773 2324 for more details.

You are asked to join your prayers with those of Pope Francis who constantly prays for peace.  As he said “Lord, God of Abraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us to live as brothers and sisters.  Give us the strength daily to be instruments of peace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister.  Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands.  Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be ‘brother’, and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!  Amen.”
