9th Week in Ordinary Time 2020
Today is the feast of Pentecost. The disciples were in lockdown, isolated and imprisoned in their fear. The Spirit of God gave them the courage to go our and proclaim the Good News of redemption, of a new relationship with God and new life in the world. Today we celebrate the superabundance of God’s presence given to mankind in an eternal embrace.
Churches will open in the near future! That is the recent message from our bishop. The diocese is providing guidelines as well as practical help to make this a reality. We will not be able to gather for Mass just yet but at least we will be able to enter the church, perhaps light a candle and pray before the Blessed Sacrament.
From Katie Maidment: Sincere thanks to everyone who has made donations in memory of Bob. The final total will be announced when the online donation platform [via Ivan Fisher Funeral Home] closes on 15th June. This will also include any donations made in tribute via the Support Cambodia website.
Marie-Madeleine Kenning from our diocese has recently produced a book on Cambodia: ‘Then the Khmer Rouge Came: Survivors’ Stories from Northwest Cambodia, a memoir’. It will be published at the end of June but you can pre-order a copy by contacting her on:firstname.lastname@example.org
