Back to Church!

 

From Sunday, 30 January onwards, it will no longer be required to make reservations to attend Sunday masses.  We will, of course, respect each other’s space and safety by wearing face masks in church and by maintaining social distancing.   Children’s Liturgy will also resume on 30 January.

Inspirational Message for January 2022

January 2022. Let me start by wishing you all a very blessed 2022. Hopefully, this year brings us closer to the end of the pandemic, or at least a less interrupting way to live with COVID.  Pope Francis started the year with the 55th World Day of Peace message on the 1st of January entitled: Dialogue between Generations, Education and Work: Tools for Building Lasting Peace. Click here to read the message. To bring different generations closer together, he himself participated in a new Netflix series called Stories of a Generation. The 4-episode documentary, made by filmmakers younger than 30, highlighted interviews with people older than 70, who all made an impact on society either through their courage, creativity, their pioneering crossing of boundaries, or their joy of life.

It is a question that is at the heart of the many challenges and answers in our lives. Love received or given/ denied, or overflowing can make or break our lives. Without making the experience of love something too far removed from reality by over-idealizing it, it sure is heartwarming to see concrete witnesses and acts of love as inspiring examples within reach. During this New Year, the Church all over the world will participate in a Synod. The word means: “walking together”. Various questionnaires will go out to dioceses, parishes, monasteries, catholic institutions, and groups to stimulate faith conversations. What is it in our faith that gives us joy and strength to deal with the challenges of every day? Equally important is to talk about the other side. What stands in the way of our faith and what needs to...
