BEACONSFIELD PARISH NEWS
FOR WEEK STARTING 21 MAY 2017

Introduction:

Each Sunday of the Easter season, we celebrate the gifts we have received in Baptism and Confirmation. Through Baptism and Confirmation we have been given the Holy Spirit. Today, through the voice of the Church, Christ is saying to us what he said to the apostles: "If you love me, keep my commandments". We could not possibly call us His Disciples if we do not listen to His words and make an effort to live by them.
