Jesus Christ be with you all this Easter.
Hello, and welcome to our
parish community online ...
NO PUBLIC MASS UNTIL
IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM
Online Daily Prayer:
Message for Holy Week and Easter
for the parishioners of St. Aidan's East Acton and Our Lady of
Another week of the Coronavirus
pandemic; another week of worry and concern for everyone;
another week of sadness and loss across the Country; another
week of being in awe of the bravery and commitment of the people
working on the front line in the NHS and caring professions.
Another week of seeing our shops and supermarkets well stocked
and open and our public transport running thanks to the
dedication of their workers. Another week of amazing and
uplifting stories of our parishioners helping and caring for one
another. Another week of phone calls with offers of help, and
inquires of health and good wishes.
And yet this is not just another
week it is Holy Week, a week in which we "herald with the whole
Church the celebration of our Lords Paschal Mystery that is to
say, of His Passion and Resurrection" This Holy Week will be
like no other, for this Holy Week our churches will sadly but
necessarily remain closed. The crucial social distancing
essential in these weeks means our parish community will not
gather together for our Easter celebrations, but let us be
united in prayer.
This Holy Week let our separation
cause us to be even more united through the Holy Spirit as we
gather in our own homes to pray for each other.
The priests of the parish, Frs
Fintan, Chris, Pearse and I will celebrate the services, all be
it alone and behind closed doors, but we will be united with you
all. Coronavirus cannot break that bond.
On Holy Thursday rather the washing
of the feet, all priests will renew their priestly vows, on Good
Friday, we will venerate the cross for and in solidarity with
you, and at the Easter Vigil we will wait together for
resurrection, for the dawn to overcome the darkness, for new
life, for joy and hope to spring eternal.
So however you celebrate this Holy
Week be assured of our love and prayers until we can call come
together again and celebrate all that we have missed in these
weeks of separation.
One behalf of Frs. Fintan, Chris,
Pearse, Deacon Tito and myself I would like to wish you and
yours all the blessings of Easter. Stay safe and well with God's
grace. Fr. Fergal.
Alleluia, Alleluia He is Risen, He
goes before us....
Prayer for Health Staff
Wondrous God, author of life,
you fashioned us in your likeness
and breathed into us the life which is your own.
Be with those whose special care is the health of mind and body.
Fill their hearts with awe for the life which is your gift
and sustain them daily in your service,
that their hands may bring to others
the comfort of your healing touch.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer for those affected by
the current situation
come to the help of your people.
Be our shelter in this time of peril
and strengthen the bonds of our community.
Bring healing to all who suffer the ravages of disease
and assist those whose skill and art can put an end to this
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
