Blessing of Throats for the Feast of St Blaise

Sunday 28th January. 

Fourth Sunday of Year A
Mass at 8.30am & 10am. 

Refreshments served after both Masses 
in the Pope John Paul Room.
Come and join us!

This week sees the Feast of St Blaise on Friday. There will be the traditional Blessing of Throats on the Vigil of His Feast at the end of Novena & Benediction on Thursday evening.
Anyone with children at our Primary School can join us at 9am on Friday, where the Blessing of Throats will also take place.

St Blaise was a Martyr for his Catholic Faith. This Sunday we will hear the Beatitudes during the Gospel. I feel that we often forget the final one:

"Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

Let us pray for the many who are persecuted, in all sorts of ways, for their Catholic Faith today.
