QUEST OPENING & CLOSING PRAYERS FOR LENT,2018

QUEST OPENING & CLOSING PRAYERS FOR LENT,2018

Opening Prayer

O Lord, as we enter this Lenten journey of purification and renewal through our Baptism, strengthen us with the armours of almsgiving, prayers and fasting. We want to see Your Light in ‘these lengthening days’, ‘Lent’ by getting out of our comfort zone. We want to walk in Your Blessings. Amen

Closing Prayer

Lord! Your Words are a lamp to our path. As we learn from Your Word, drive away the darkness and make us clear and safe paths to the safe refuge of our homes tonight so we can spread the word through the week. In gratitude, we ask these in the name of Jesus, our Lord. Amen 

Hebrews 6:18-19

Hebrews 6:18-19 

18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain

QUEST Cancelled Nov 29th .  No Quest for remainder of 2017 - Quest resumes Wednesday, Jan 10th, 2018

Dear Quest Family,

I apologize for yet another cancellation of Quest meeting. There is a Parish Memorial Mass on the 29th Nov at 7:00 PM. I myself have lost two very dear family members this year and would very much like to attend this mass. I am sure some of you may want to attend the mass as well. So Quest is cancelled for that day and we will all meet for the Quest dinner on December 6th at Tucker's Market Place for 6:00 PM. Then we have a Christmas Break until the 10th of January, 2018.

Those who have not yet responded about your attendance at Tucker's Market Place on December 6th, please do. 

God bless!
Hilda :)

June 4th, 2017: PENTECOST SUNDAY

PENTECOST SUNDAY: June 4th, 2017


Read about the Holy Spirit


Listen to Dr Scott Hahn


Scott Hahn talks about this important feast day:
The giving of the Spirit to the new people of God crowns the mighty acts of the Father in salvation history.Read about the Holy Spirit
The Jewish feast of Pentecost called all devout Jews to Jerusalem to celebrate their birth as God's chosen people, in the covenant Law given to Moses at Sinai (see Leviticus 23:15-21Deuteronomy 16:9-11).
In today's First Reading the mysteries prefigured in that feast are fulfilled in the pouring out of the Spirit on Mary and the Apostles (see Acts 1:14).
The Spirit seals the new law and new covenant brought by Jesus, written not on stone tablets but on the hearts of believers, as the prophets promised (see 2 Corinthians 3:2-8Romans 8:2).
The Spirit is revealed as the life-giving breath of the Father, the Wisdom by which He made all things, as we sing in today's Psalm. In the beginning, the Spirit came as a "mighty wind" sweeping over the face of the earth (see Genesis 1:2). And in the new creation of Pentecost, the Spirit again comes as "a strong, driving wind" to renew the face of the earth.
As God fashioned the first man out of dust and filled him with His Spirit (see Genesis 2:7), in today's Gospel we see the New Adam become a life-giving Spirit, breathing new life into the Apostles (see 1 Corinthians 15:45,47).
Like a river of living water, for all ages He will pour out His Spirit on His body, the Church, as we hear in today's Epistle (see also John 7:37-39).
We receive that Spirit in the sacraments, being made a "new creation" in Baptism (see 2 Corinthians 5:17Galatians 6:15). Drinking of the one Spirit in the Eucharist (see 1 Corinthians 10:4), we are the first fruits of a new humanity - fashioned from out of every nation under heaven, with no distinctions of wealth or language or race, a people born of the Spirit.
