BEACONSFIELD PARISH NEWS
FOR WEEK STARTING 14 MAY 2017

Introduction:

In our Gospel Reading this weekend, Jesus assures us that ultimately all of us have a home to which to go, namely, our Father's house in Heaven. He even says that He has gone to prepare a place for us in that House. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, the One in Whom we can place our trust. This is a tremendous reason for hope. Because we believe these things we gather to praise God.

A Reflection for Mother's Day:

A Mother is someone who cares when others care less; someone who encourages when others ridicule; someone who defends when others condemn; someone with patience when others are impatient; someone who appreciates when others fail to notice; someone who gives security in a world of insecurity; someone who is accepting when others reject.
A Mother is a friend at all times, to cherish and protect because all her achievements will linger for generations.

Father Liam on Leave This Week:

During this coming week, Father Liam will be at Shoalwater for the Annual Priests Seminar. This means that the daily Mass will be a Communion Service, commencing at 8.15am
