My Dear Friends,


Today we celebrate the decent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles. This marks the beginning of the third phase of our salvation history, following on from the era of the prophets and the era of Jesus Christ, that is, the era of the Church or the era of the Holy Spirit. The Church now, as then, must continue, aided and enriched by the Holy Spirit, the work of Jesus Christ – proclaiming his word and celebrating his sacraments until he comes again.


This weekend nine of our young people will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation: Rebecca Dunbar (at the Vigil Mass in Frinton) and, Christopher Bartholomew, Patrick Bartholomew, Luca Kulacz, Neroli Kulacz, Holly Leach, Maisie Leach, Cameron Wallace, and Miles Wallace (at the 10.45am Mass in Dovercourt). Please keep these young people in your daily prayers today and in the coming days.


May the triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit bless you today and always.
