A little bit of Christmas cheer

Anything to be raffled?

The Church needs more vocations and the Confraternity is making an effort to assist in this good cause by raising money to be donated to an EF seminarian.

We are planning a New Year Raffle with tickets being available from 1st of December.

If you could please donate a small non perishable item or two for the cause, it would be greatly appreciated.

Bottles and other items for the raffle will be collected by Sally after Masses between now and December. the New Year we are launching our Chartres Pilgrimage Fund.

The aim is to send four of our young people to join the Chartres 2014 Pilgrimage.

We already have circa £300+ in the kitty but we need to double that - more news on this after Christmas.

Feast of Christ the King

There will be a Missa Cantata (Newcastle Emlyn Schola) to celebrate this great feast on Sunday 27th October at 3pm (preceded by the Rosary at 2.45pm) at the Church of The Sacred Heart, Morriston, Nr Swansea.

Fr Miguel Pro SJ, martyred for the Faith in Mexico in 1927.
He died with the words: "Long live Christ the King" on his lips

Hail Redeemer, King Divine
Hail Redeemer King divine!
Priest and Lamb, the throne is thine,
King, whose reign shall never cease,
Prince of everlasting peace.

Angels, saints and nations sing

"Praised be Jesus Christ, our King;
Lord of life, earth sky and sea,
King of love on Calvary."

King, whose name creation thrills
Rule our minds, our hearts our wills
Till in peace each nation rings
With thy praises, King of Kings. (to chorus...)

King most holy, King of Truth,
Guide the lowly, guide the youth
Christ thou King of glory bright
Be to us eternal light.(to chorus...)

Shepherd King, o'er mountains steep
Homeward bring the wandering sheep;
Shelter in one royal fold
States and kingdoms, new and old. (to chorus...)

J. Schop, c. 1664.

20th October - Mission Sunday

Mass in the Extraordinary Form (22nd Sunday after Pentecost) will be at the Sacred Heart, Morriston at 3pm (Rosary at 2.45pm)

St Therese de Lisieux - Patron Saint of the Missions


O my God! I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentions and for the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
 I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, my every thought, my simplest works, by uniting them to Its infinite merits; and I wish to make reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of Its Merciful Love.
O my God! I ask of Thee for myself and for those whom I hold dear, the grace to fulfill perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for love of Thee the joys and sorrows of this passing life, so that we may one day be united together in heaven for all Eternity.
