Twenty Second Sunday in Ordinary Time (Video) Parish Priest Fr. John Madden Read the bible every day

Parish Priest Fr. John Madden

Welcome to our Parish A parish is one of God's ways of coming into contact with his people. The community is there to help and support one another. The Sacraments allow God to speak to us at key moments of our life. Mass is offered to sustain us through the ups and downs of every day life. Parish life enriches all the community. Through the parish we celebrate important events and find comfort in times of difficulty and sadness. Come and join us.   Jesus, may Your Crucifixion move me to give myself tirelessly to my brothers and sisters. May Your Pierced Heart be a fountain of grace for my journey, and my place of rest when I am weary. Amen. Fr. John Madden

The Serenity Prayer
Our Parish Prayer May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, persecution, starvation and war, so that you will reach out your hand to comford them and change their pain into joy. Amen. We, the people of Seaford Parish strive to be followers of Jesus by being a welcoming and supportive community in which the talents of all can grow and in which we live out our faith through word, sacrament and action. May the holy family St Anne and St Joachim inspire and intercede for us that we may be followers of Jesus. Amen.  Prayer and Reflection Omnia cum Deo, nihil sine Eo.  God grant me the serenity  To accept the things I cannot change;  Courage to change the things I can;  And wisdom to know the difference.   Living one day at a time;  Enjoying one moment at a time;  Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;  Taking, as He did, this sinful world  as it is, not as I would have it;   Trusting that He will make all things right  If I surrender to His Will;  So that I may be reasonably happy in this life  And supremely happy with Him  Forever and ever in the next.  Amen.

Receiving Holy Communion indifferently for the sake of just being at Mass without preparing yourself is also a sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 27Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
