10 minutes for peace!

The parish has received the message below inviting us to join in a synchronised 10 minutes of silence on Friday 21 September:

We’re very excited to invite you to a global synchronized meditation happening on Friday, Sept. 21st.

It’s called “10 Minutes for Peace” and is being coordinated by Unifyre, a partner organization supporting collective action and social impact around the world.

Please check out the video at www.unifyre.com/#video, where you can also sign up.

Let’s make this the largest group meditation on the planet.

Youth group meeting

There will be a meeting on Sunday 23 September after the 11:15 Mass to see how much interest there is in setting up a youth group for young people of secondary school age (11-18).  The meeting is for both young people and parents.  Fr Michel, who is responsible for youth work in the diocese, will also be attending the meeting.

Reminder: Marriage Preparation Day — 06 October


Our next Marriage Preparation Day will be on Saturday, 06 October 2018, from 10:00 – 16:00 at the Centre Jean XXIII near Kirchberg.

This course is for couples preparing for marriage: it’s not about preparing you for the ceremony itself, but for the rest of your married life together. These days have been both popular and highly rated; input is given by trained Marriage Preparation presenters, and as couples you have an opportunity also to share your own experience of life together.

The course is for Catholic and non-Catholic partners.

Exceptionally (due to scheduling issues, for example) you can take the course after your church wedding. If you wish to register for the October date, please see contact details below. To cover costs, we ask €75 from each couple; if this is beyond your means, no problem — again, just get in touch. Refreshments and a sandwich lunch are provided.

Our October course will be presented by members of our English-speaking parish, in association with MarriageCare UK.


To register, or for questions, please contact our parish Administrative Assistant, Nicola

Thank you,

Fr Ed
