June at St. Bede’s
Welcome to June at St. Bede’s
After the busy time of May, June is a little quieter here at St. Bede’s, but we hope that you can join us any time for the things happening.
Our Art and Craft Morning will be held on Thursday 3rd June at 10.00 am. This is a great time of friendship and creativity, with morning tea included.
The Monthly Community Market will be held in St. Bede’s Hall on Sunday 6th June from 10.00 am.
Sea Sunday will be celebrated on Sunday 20th June, when we remember those who make their living on the sea.
Our first Saints Day Out will be held on Tuesday June 29th. Meet at St. Bede’s at 10.00 am. There will be a tour of St. Peter’s Cathedral at 11.00 am, followed by a ‘Pub Lunch’ (Seniors meals available). Please speak to Dorothy if you are interested.
Our song for this month, as we commemorate Sea Sunday, is Eternal Father Strong to Save. We hope you enjoy it.
Prayers During This Pandemic
Church leaders, including our Archbishop, ask us to pause for prayer at 8 am every Friday.
We are asked to pray for:
* An end to the pandemic
* Healing for people suffering from the illness
* Those researching a vaccine
* Our political and community leaders as they try to provide wise
* Our health workers, as they are at the front line.
Almighty and All–loving God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
We pray to you through Christ the Healer for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid–19
in and across the world.
We pray too for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss of each and every person who has died as a result of contracting the disease.
Give wisdom to policymakers, skill to healthcare professionals and researchers, comfort to everyone in distress and a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
who showed compassion to the outcast, acceptance to the rejected and love to those to whom no love was shown. Amen.
Archbishop Michael Jackson (Dublin & Glendalough)
