This Friday, June 15th 2012, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. This is the parish feast day. All this week, we have been uniting our Masses with the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin. Therefore, on Friday, we hope to celebrate this special day in our parish in communion with the Congress. The theme on Friday for the Congress will be 'Communion in suffering and in healing'. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will be taking place at the Congress Mass at the RDS and so we will do the same at 10am Mass here in Sacred Heart Church.
Any sacrament is a significant event in the life of a person. Therefore, anybody who, after reflection, is conscious of the need for the healing grace of this Sacrament because of any form of illness, is welcome to receive the Sacrament of the Sick at this Mass. Blog readers are asked to pass this invitation on to family members or neighbours who are sick at this time, and perhaps, to offer them transport to the Church for the Mass.
