Next Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent.

 

Preparation for the Sacraments will begin shortly after Christmas. At the moment I would like to identify who the candidates are, and so would ask parents of any eligible children to contact me so that I can get some details. First Confession is normally celebrated for children in Primary 3 and Holy Communion for children in Primary 4.

 

Refugees – a poem by brian bilston

They have no need of our help
So do not tell me
These haggard faces could belong to you or me
Should life have dealt a different hand
We need to see them for who they really are
Chancers and scroungers
Layabouts and loungers
With bombs up their sleeves
Cut-throats and thieves
They are not
Welcome here
We should make them
Go back to where they came from
They cannot
Share our food

Share our homes
Share our countries
Instead let us
Build a wall to keep them out
It is not okay to say
These are people just like us
A place should only belong to those who are born there
Do not be so stupid to think that
The world can be looked at another way
