Sunday, 2 August 2020
I beseech Thee, O Lord, who didst weep over the city of Jerusalem, because it knew not the time of its visitation,
to enlighten my heart, that I may know and profit by the season of grace.
To God’s elect … who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to be obedient to Jesus Christ and sprinkled with his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance.
1 Peter 1:1-2

PARKING AT GIRRAWEEN
For people who come to our Chapel at Giraween for Mass on Sunday, please kindly park your vehicle farther away from the premises, except those who have difficulty walking. If you have to park your vehicle on the narrow side road near the Chapel (Heather Street), please don’t park your car opposite to another car. This can block big vehicles from driving through. Thank you for your attention!
