All of us receive invitations from time to time. We are most familiar with wed-ding invitations. People generally invite friends and neighbours to a wedding. An invitation is an expression of love on the part of the person who invites. It cements friendship and enhances a relationship that already exists. An invitation normally assumes freedom. We are free to respond or not. There is no sense of compulsion when someone invites to a function. God invites us too. He invites us to a heavenly banquet where we can enjoy his company forever. God has given us this invitation because of his love for each of us. This invitation means an end to death and mourning. The atmosphere in God’s company will be one of lasting joy. God also invites us to an earthly banquet that points forward to the banquet that awaits us all beyond this world. It is the banquet of the Eucharist, the Sacramental meal which connects us to the company of Christ and renews our friendship or relationship with him. We are free to respond to this invitation or not. It is intended by Christ as a benefit and a blessing. Unfortunately we can turn down blessings and what is for our good. Some come up with many excuses. But there can be little excuse for ignoring the love of Christ.


  • 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
