We know that this holy Pope opened the Second Vatican Council: the Catholic Church responding to the Signs of Times. Pope Francis continues to make relevant the Teachings of the Church to our present times by opening the Synod on Family which is going on now in Rome. Around 250 representatives will share with the Pope on the topic of Divorce, Contraception, Same Sex Marriage and other issues facing Family life. Let us pray that the Holy Spirit will guide us in this Synod. On 22nd of October is the feast of another holy Pope John Paul 2nd. The Polish community in the parish will present us a portrait of their hero on 19th Oct at 11am Mass at St. Patrick. They will also sing a favourite hymn of the saint in Polish. November is the month for our beloved dead. The Feast for the Holy Souls is transferred to 3rd November which is on Monday. Please hand in the names of your beloved dead for special masses for them. November is also a special month for me and Deacon Peter. We will be away for two weeks. I will celebrate my 60th birthday with my family on 8th of November. It is also the anniversary of the great typhoon Haiyan which devastated my region. So I will be doing charity work together with my family and friends. I will leave on the 4th of Nov. and come back on the 20th Nov. They say life begins at 60. Fr. Patrick Sugue from Dundalk Ireland will come to help us in the parishes.

After the blessing the Polish members of the congregation will sing the favourite song of John Paul II, which was also performed in our church on the day of the canonization ceremony in Rome.
