Father, Pour out your Spirit upon us. 

Grant us a new vision of your glory, a new experience of your power, a new faithfulness to your word, and a new consecration to your service, that your love may grow among us and your kingdom come, through Christ our Lord.

Your opportunity

This Mission, the first week-long mission in our parish since 1990, is an opportunity for you to ask questions, to look at your relationship with God or share your hopes with us. 

Come along and try it – you are invited! 

Who is leading the parish mission?

posted 1 Jul 2017, 15:23 by Martin Sylvester   [ updated 1 Jul 2017, 15:24 ]

Our Parish Mission is being led by two Redemptorist priests. 

Until recently Fr. Kieran Brady has been running St. Mary’s, Kinnoull,  a retreat centre in Perth. He is now involved in a new mission in Erdington Abbey Birmingham. He has been leading retreats and missions for many years. 

Fr. Thomas MacCarte is an experienced parish missioner and has given many retreats and missions across the U.K and Ireland. Fr. Tom is based at St. Mary’s Perth. 

The ministry of preaching “Good News” is the work of the Redemptorists. 

"It is through the  invitation of your parish priest and parish pastoral council," they write, "that we are coming to celebrate this Mission with you."

I don't go to church anymore, or I go rarely. Am I welcome?

There are many reasons why people stop going to Church or don’t go very often.

Sometimes people just get out of the habit of going; perhaps they are divorced, remarried and feel unwelcome; maybe they had an argument with a priest.

Whatever the reason, this Mission will give you the chance to do something about your faith in God.

Who knows, you might decide to come to all of the Mission Services.

You are welcome to come along for an informal chat with one of the Mission priests.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available after all Masses and services throughout the week.

This Mission is an important time in the life of your Parish – please join us! You will make all the difference to our Mission Celebrations.
