Parish Coffee Morning

This weekend we celebrate the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ. What is in question is the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. Jesus died to show us his own and his Father’s love for us. His passion and physical death was the measure of the extent of his love for us. St. Paul was very aware of the significance of Jesus’ death where all of us are concerned. He sums it up very well in the Letter to the Galatians. The life that I am now living, subject to the limitations of human nature, I am living in faith, faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. Jesus loved us by giving himself for us. St. John’s Gospel is very conscious that God loved us through his Incarnate Son who came to us as a human person. For this is how God loves the world (of mankind) he gave us his only Son so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

God’s love through his Son, Jesus Christ reaches and touches us all. In Baptism, we were drawn into the death of Jesus. He died to all that was connected to sin within himself. In Baptism we also begin that journey to dying to sin and taking on the new life of relationship with the risen Christ that is out life’s purposes. That life is ours if sin stays on the outside and we live the Easter experience to the best of our ability.


  • The Parish of Bunclody/Kilmyshall shall be a community:
  • Of renewed faith and commitment to Christ expressed in prayer and genuine Eucharistic worship where all participate fully.
  • With deep respect for and interest in each and every person.
  • Flourishing in love, care, support, co-operation, education and communication, building to the unity of the Body of Christ.
  • Reaching out the hand of welcome to all who do not belong to our faith and worshipping community.

Please let your priest know when a family member is in hospital or sick at home
