Last Thursday 24th June was the Feast of St. John the Baptist. It was an important day for our parish as St. John the Baptist is our Patron Saint.
The beautiful bronze sculpture of Jesus being baptised by John the Baptist is being placed on the main alter this weekend as we pray for the blessing and needs of our parish.
The statue was donated to the parish by the Canadian sculpture TIMOTHY P. SCHMALZ.
Prayer to St. John the Baptist.
Oh God, you gave St. Elizabeth,
in her old age,
The gift of a son, St. John the Baptist,
who would prepare the way for Jesus
to begin His Ministry here on earth.
Lord, fill your people with the joy
of possessing graces like those of Saint John the Baptist,
And direct the minds of all us in the way of peace.
St. John was martyred for truth and justice,
so may we Dear God,
energetically profess our Faith in You,
and help us to lead others to
Your way,Your truth, and your life.
