From our pastor, Father Neil Herlihy
This Extraordinary Year of Mercy provides us with a great opportunity to meet the challenge presented to us by Our Holy Father. He calls on us to become more merciful in our lives and to bring God’s mercy to others. He also calls on us to seek spiritual cleansing and avail ourselves of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He challenges us to learn more about our faith, more effectively live our faith, and set a good example for those we encounter in the course of our daily lives.
As previously mentioned, one way to grow spiritually and more effectively live our faith is to participate in the “Living the Eucharist” program. It’s organizers describe it as a “parish based program designed to help revitalize parish life and spirituality through a more profound experience of Sunday Mass. It helps the entire parish – adults, teens, and families – grow in their Catholic faith and live more fully as disciples of Jesus.” Parishioners participate in faith sharing groups, family activities, and devotional and catechetical readings. Fr. Tri will coordinate our program for the coming year.
In addition to the “Living the Eucharist” program, we can also grow spiritually by participating in the many educational opportunities offered here at Saint Brigid. Please check the parish website or bulletin for details.
As we begin this New Year, we are invited to take seriously the invitation of Our Holy Father to grow spiritually and truly strive to be the disciples the Lord has called us to be.
