A time of Change- reflection prayer

This Weekend sees some of our Diocesan priests take up their new posts. As a Diocese we thank them for their wholehearted service and “yes” to the Gospel call. It is a tough weekend for them and the parishes they leave behind.

Our lives are marked forever by those we
meet; the friendships we make and the love
we experience, the reconciliations and the
quarrels, the work we have tried to do
together, for each other and for those less
All this has given us something that will last.
Long after we’ve forgotten the frustration
of daily life, we’ll remember the
friendships, the times of growth, the fun,
the laughter, the jokes. We’ll remember
how we helped each other to grow as
people, in faith, in hope and in love.
