Happy Father’s Day

Welcome to St Fiacre’s Parish. We welcome you with great joy!

Last Sunday, we had celebrated the Feast of Saint Fiacre, the patron of our Parish, in a simple but meaningful celebration. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we can still gather together to observe this special occasion for three consecutive days (Triduum). Although there are no other activities besides Holy Mass, we are so grateful as we have consecrated our Parish one more time to Jesus Christ, our Lord, and put it under the protection of the Immaculate Conception of Mother Mary. We perpetually pray that St Fiacre’s Parish will continue to progress and develop in the future, both in its quality and quantity.

On this occasion, I would like to thank the organising committee, benefactors, religious associations, and all parishioners who have participated in the celebration. I can see your amazing supports to the Parish. May our Lord reward you in abundance! Besides, I want to congratulate the winners of this year’s raffle tickets. You can find the information on page 3 in this bulletin, as well as, through the Parish website and Facebook. If you have not been lucky this year, no worries, there is still a chance for you next year.

This Sunday, 6th September 2020, we also celebrate Father’s Day. I want to thank all fathers who have been educating their children and grandchildren in the Catholic faith. I know your challenges, yet at the same time, I believe that through your good examples and strong faith, you have shown your children and grandchildren the right path leading to God. Since this is a special day, I will give a special blessing to all fathers and father’s figures.

Finally, I invite you all to strengthen prayer’s life in your family. In the Gospel today, Jesus says: “If two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three meet in my name, I shall be there with them” (Matt. 18:19-20). Pray together as one family is so essential. Quoting the words of Fr. Patrick Peyton (1909-1992), I want to re-emphasise that a family that prays together, stays together! – Fr Pio.
