Peter’s Pence: Thank you for your generous response to last week’s collection for Peter’s Pence which raised €3,530.
Strawberry Sunday takes place in the Coffee Dock after all Masses today – please join us with your family and friends. Traditionally on Strawberry Sunday, we gave out a bowl of strawberries and cream and people kindly gave a donation. This year the Coffee Dock Team have decided to expand on the theme of Strawberry Sunday – they have baked and bought flans and meringues, frozen yogurt for smoothies and lots of other strawberry treats. While Strawberry Sunday is about Community, we also want to reduce our debt so there will be special offers on all these treats. Your support would be appreciated.

Not ‘till the loom is silent
And the shutters cease to fly
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why.
The dark threads are as needful
In the skilled weaver’s hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.
