In addition, to saying goodbye to our
Year 6 pupils, we will be marking the

given 25 years of teaching to St David’s.
A farewell goes to Miss Cousins,
who will be taking up a teaching post
in Dubai.
All are welcome.
Mr. Hughes
Farewell and Thank you
Next Sunday (24th July), we will
say “Farewell” to the Morris family
and to Sheila and Bob Naybour. We
thank them for being part of our parish community and for their generous
service and involvement .
Tea/Coffee will be served in the Hall
after the Mass, so that we can thank
them and say our “Goodbyes”. We
wish them every blessing in the future.
People expect us to be busy, overworked.
It’s become a status symbol in our society: if we’re busy we’re important; if we’re
not busy, we’re embarrassed to admit it.
Busyness is where we get our security.
It’s validating, popular and pleasing. It’s
also a good excuse for not dealing with
the first things in our lives.

e have defined
ourselves by what
we do, not by what we are.
When first meeting a person we often ask “What do
you do?” And we seem to
be impressed by how busy
they are. Somebody with a
full diary, with a frenetic
lifestyle and a backlog of
texts on their mobile phone
is considered a success. To
have no time is thought of
as a status symbol. But we
may still not know who we
If we always respond to the
urgent, we may end up
missing the essential. By
keeping busy we can easily
stave off what we know we
should really be doing.

we would like to be thought
of than it does about who shown the basic courtesies.

and talked while Martha
was going frantic in the
kitchen. The gospel tells us
that Martha was
“distracted” by all the work
that had to be done for the
meal and the entertaining.
But both Martha and Mary
were needed. The guest
did not come just for food
but for company too. Mary
played her part by entertaining Jesus and by allowing herself to be enriched
as she listened to what he
had to say. Martha’s role
was to get everything just
right so that the meal would
go without a hitch.
It might be a bit harsh to
say that the whole occasion
smacked of devotion on
Mary’s part and of duty on
Martha’s. But what is certain is that Martha allowed
herself to be “distracted” by
important things that could

In our relationship with
God, do we feel that we
have always got to be doing something? Always active, proving our love of
God? A faith without any
sign of good works would
be a lazy one. But if we
never slow down enough to
talk to God, to rest in God’s
presence and to listen for
what God is trying to tell us,
then we will end up running
on very low batteries. And
we might find that what we
thought was crucial just
turns out to be a way of
distracting ourselves and
avoiding God.
Journey of Faith 2016/17
‘Come and See’
Are you or someone you know interested
in learning more about the process of
entering the Catholic Faith? Come and
learn why Catholics do what they do and
what Catholics believe about God,
church and family life in Christ.
We start our new sessions during the
first week of September on Monday evenings starting at 7.30pm in the Parish
Library. Registration forms are available
at the Flint parish office or from your parish priests. This programme is open to

After considering your family and friends in
your will, why not think of leaving a gift to
the family of the Church? It is a way of
thanking God for the blessings you
have received during your life and a wonderful way of helping to ensure that the
faith and values we cherish will be carried
on for future generations- your children,
grandchildren and beyond.
Your gift could be specified to be used for
general purposes at the discretion of the
parish priest ( or the bishop if it is given to
the diocese).
Making the ultimate gift will be as simple as
asking your advisor to include a statement
such as :
ESTATE] to St. David's Catholic
Church, Mold (or if you would like to give
to the diocese: to Wrexham Diocesan Trustees Registered) to be applied as to both
capital and income for the general charitable purposes of the Parish ( or Wrexham
Diocesan Trust (Charity Number
700426) AND I REQUEST without imposing any binding trust or legal obligation that the same shall be used for such
purposes within St. David’s, Mold or at the
discretion of the parish priest AND I DIRECT that the receipt of the Parish Priest
shall be sufficient
discharge to my Executors.
