The waters of a river give joy to God’s city,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is for us a refuge and strength,
a helper close at hand, in time of distress,
so we shall not fear though the earth should rock,
though the mountains fall into the depths of the sea. The waters ….
The waters of a river give joy to God’s city,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within, it cannot be shaken;
God will help it at the dawning of the day.
The Lord of hosts is with us:
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
Come, consider the works of the Lord,
the redoubtable deeds he has done on the earth.

Mary Willis RIP
Mary died last Sunday afternoon. Her body will be received into Redruth church
on Tuesday evening at 6pm. She was a fighter - sometimes making her own way
to mass from Lanner even though she was nearly totally blind, very frail and in
her nineties. She would repeatedly thank God 'for her Catholic faith and for still
having a lucid mind!'
Dick Findlay-Wilson RIP
My father died peacefully on Monday afternoon after a long illness (I was able
to say goodbye to him and get his blessing just 5 days before). I would like to
say thank you for your kindness and prayers.
Christmas masses in the parish - changing the times
We usually have all four of the Christmas masses (with help in the past of a
retired priest), but it has long seemed more than is strictly needed.
Instead we are considering reducing to three masses:
7pm vigil mass in Camborne (6.30pm carols)
12 midnight in Camborne (11.30pm carols)
10am on Christmas day in Redruth
The vigil in Redruth is popular with young families but the church is
sometimes over full, so moving it to Camborne would make sense.
Camborne would keep midnight mass, but Redruth would have the main
Christmas day mass - at 10am. The decision has not been made yet; your
responses would be appreciated ASAP.
Sadly we have had to cancel the Parish Ceilidh next Saturday 15th November
Thanks to the CWL for their work on the idea. Fr Chris has suggested a parish
epiphany party after Christmas, for those who are around, i.e. to celebrate
Christmas when we really should be celebrating it!

Pope Francis' bold defence of traditional marriage
In an audience with members of the international Schoenstatt Marian
movement on 26th October, Pope Francis warned that the sacrament of
marriage has been reduced to a mere association, and urged participants to
be witnesses in a secular world.
“The family is being hit, the family is being struck and the family is being
bastardized,” the Pope told those in attendance at the Oct. 25 audience.
He warned against the common view in society that “you can call everything
family, right?”
“What is being proposed is not marriage, it's an association. But it's not
marriage! It's necessary to say these things very clearly and we have to say
it!” Pope Francis stressed.
He lamented that there are so many “new forms” of unions which are
“totally destructive and limiting the greatness of the love of marriage.”
“So many families are divided, so many marriages broken, (there is) such
relativism in the concept of the Sacrament of Marriage,” he said. “There is a
crisis in the family because it's beat up from all sides and left very
