Weekly Chaplaincy News

As I write these Chaplaincy notes we will have celebrated two House masses at The Abbey Catholic Church in Erdington. Chad and Harvington House have begun this new academic year with mass. Our priests have celebrated mass and through their prayers and this celebration have prepared us for the year ahead. As a Catholic school we are delighted to show this witness to our faith and our willingness not only to pray for our communities but the work of the Church worldwide.

Before Jesus ascended to his Father in heaven, he commanded us to go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News. This time and every time we follow and adhere to this command. We give public witness to our faith. In a world that so often recites the secular creed, we recite the Apostles Creed.

Fr Joe our school chaplain celebrated mass with us on

Tuesday where we remembered the great gift of God’s angels in our lives. The following prayer is so meaningful and beautiful that you may wish to say it either in private or with your family. How wonderful to know that God has gifted us with such a wonderful companion.

Angel of God My guardian dear To Whom His love Commits me here Ever this day Be at my side To light and guard To rule and guide. Amen

Our Guardian Angels pray for us.

Please feel welcome to join us at the Abbey this Thursday and Friday to celebrate with your child this great gift of the mass. Remember us in your prayers as we remember you in ours. During this month of Our Lady try and make time to say a decade of the rosary. In school we have been praying the rosary in a different language each day. Dear governors, parents, families and friends you are always in our prayers.

I leave you with a little thought from this week’s Gospel.

Jesus challenges his disciples and others with regards to their earthly procession. They question who will be saved? Jesus says to them. ‘For men it is impossible, but everything is possible to God.’ This week and every week let us remember out total dependence on God. As St Augustine said, ‘Our hearts are restless, O Lord, until they rest in you.

God Bless.
