positive experience for myself and family
Faith stories presented a
real example of how the Gospel had affected them personally The Healing Mass was beautiful
and should be repeated often in the Parish Fr Ged’s sermons were inspirational and I liked the bringing
together of those present as a community and speaking to people we did not

Some stories ...
It was a great time to refresh, to meet friends and strangers, and to be
challenged if I am honest. The team were great at encouraging me grow even
more in the faith I believe in. I cannot stay where I was in my faith
before the mission, I reckon God has a better plan than that for us all really.
Thank you to the parish,
let's see what becomes of it. Perhaps other people will give their stories
For me the most powerful part of the mission was Friday's service "Sharing
the Light" when 12 parishioners went out of the church to invite strangers
to come into the church.
Between 20 & 30 people arrived and were escorted up to the sanctuary
to light a candle - possibly the first visit to a Catholic church for some
of them. It reminded me that our purpose as Christians is Mission and not
Maintenance. Taking a small step and allowing Jesus to do his
afternoon service for those who serve in the parish – quite motivating.
The reconciliation service was very moving. Also the ‘stations’ on
Monday evening – especially the action one were very inspiring as was the
praying for someone whose name you picked out and talking to people you didn’t
Overall I enjoyed being part of the visiting team, especially some of the
visits and the visit of the team to my house. I also liked the early morning
Found the service on Tuesday (the only evening I attended) very inspirational
– particularly the homily given by Fr Ged.
Particularly enjoyed the Monday evening service and the Sharing
the Light was very powerful – showed how we need to leave our comfort zones
There was a great peace about the
Mission – as if we were doing what we are called to do.
parishioners in new roles. The Monday evening activities involved most people.
Sharing the Light was moving. Liked the community feeling of the Parish
