Emmaus Book Group

Emmaus Book Group
As we came through our first Easter in Lockdown it somehow seemed easier to
understand the sense of devastation and loss experienced by the first disciples. We gathered together and pondered the writing of Fr Denis McBride as he invited us to open up our understanding of the Emmaus story. We met via Zoom and shared our interpretations, understandings and reflections, all with good humour.
The Emmaus Group was born.

To date we have explored:
The Road to Emmaus and Beyond, Denis McBride
God in all Things, Gerard Hughes
Prayer, our Deepest Longing, Ronald Rolheiser
Journeying towards Jesus in Advent, Denis McBride
Seeing God in Art, Richard Harries

We’ve also met twice for St Vincent’s take on ‘A Good Read’. Here we bring along those stories which we have really enjoyed, have touched our hearts or inspired us in some way.

Journeying with Jesus, a companion’s guide, Denis McBride
is our book for Lent, starting Monday 22 February
If you would like to join us please contact Celia 439 3573.
We look forward to having you with us.

Rosary Group

TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19 LIMITATIONS

The Rosary group meet once a month usualy on the last Wednesday at 7pm in the meeting room , We have a Scripture reading and then recite one mystery of the Rosary. All are welcome just come along.

Flower Group

The Flower Group, set up to organise the floral arrangements in church, was formed in 1990. At present, ten ladies are involved, some from the original group. We meet socially three times a year in order to plan for the forthcoming months. On average, each person is responsible for choosing and arranging the flowers for the main altar and the entrance table about four times a year.

Our most recent joint venture was at Easter when the church was decorated with white lilies, kindly donated by parishioners in memory of loved ones. Being a member of the Flower Group is a very enjoyable way of helping to enhance the beauty of our church. New volunteers are made very welcome, and help is given if required.

Prayer Group

The Prayer Group started several years ago when about eight of us followed a course called ‘Praying Alone and Together’ by Arthur R. Baranowski. This gave us examples of different ways of praying, some familiar and some that were new for many of us. Each meeting left us with things to think about until the next time. I believe we all found it helpful in different ways and we decided to continue.
