Suicide for Parents
As we begin this new week in Your name, O God, we remember with gratitude the gift that the
life of Zak was for us- his friendship, his smile, and his presence amongst us. As we, family
and friends, mourn the death of Zak we pray that the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow
will bring us from this place of mourning to the light, hope and peace of a new day.
This week in Liturgy of the Word with Children and in our classroom Religious Education we
begin the Scriptures of Advent to allow us to experience the richness that this Liturgical Sea-
son offers us. The Scripture of Advent forms a rich tapestry of images centred on the truth
that God has come among us. We do not pretend we are waiting for Jesus to be born in a
stable. We remember that as we remember our own birthdays. The invitation of Advent is to heighten our awareness
of the all-pervading presence of the Risen Christ as Emmanuel - God-among-us.
Thank you for your support of SOCKTOBER.
We raised $160.00 for Catholic Missions.
This week we honour all holy men and women, known and unknown, lowly or mighty on All Saints Day Thursday
November 1st. On Friday November 2nd we remember our relatives and friends as we celebrate All
Best wishes for a week ahead just filled with good things!
