The Pope’s Intentions for May
Universal intention – The world of finance: Let us pray that those in charge of finance will work with governments to regulate the financial sphere and protect citizens from its dangers.
May is The Month of Mary
During May we remember Mary, Mother of Jesus in a special way. We encourage you all to create your own May Altar at home with a statue of Mary, a candle and some flowers. We can add some Rosary Beads to remind us to pray to Mary for help and to pray together for any special intentions. The Rosary will be recited each morning in St Lawrence’s Church, during May, commencing at 9.40am before the 10.00am Mass.
We welcome into our Christian faith community the following who received the Sacrament of Baptism:
Carson Galbraith, Eva Campbell, Daniel Ledley, Aoibheann Kelly and Ada McBrien
Altar Society for May
The Altar Society for May is Team E Sheila McCann, Mary McBrien, Ailish McPhillips, Mary Corrigan, Margaret Reid, John Murray and Agnes Murray.
Many thanks to those who have returned their Trócaire envelopes or made donations. The amount received to date is £8030.40. Remember any donation made before the 16th May will be doubled by the British Government. We will be sending of our donations on the week ending 14th May 2021.
Fr. Dawson will celebrate his Diamond Jubilee and 85th birthday in June. Due to the current restrictions his parishioners in Brookborough/Fivemiletown are not sure how they will celebrate these milestones. Inquiries are being made to see if anyone in our parish has photographs or interesting stories of Fr. Dawson’s time in Fintona and if they would like to share them. Any information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 028 89521291.
Adoration of The Blessed Sacrament
Eucharistic Adoration is a time to help foster a spirit of prayer, worship and adoration of Jesus truly present on the altar. Adoration will continue to take place in the main body of the Church to enable those housebound or at home to adore The Blessed Sacrament live over the webcam. This is an opportunity for personal prayer each Wednesday from 10.30am – 6.00pm.
Prayer for Vocation
Lord Jesus Christ, gentle shepherd, you know your sheep, and you know how to reach their hearts.
Give to the people of our parish hearts that are open to the call of the Holy Spirit. Speak to the hearts of the (young) men of our diocese that they may hear your call to follow you and serve your people as priests. Awaken in them the courage to answer:”Here I am, Lord, Send me.”
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen
