The Holy Spirit Changes Hearts

“Jesus had told his disciples: “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8). That is exactly what happened. Those disciples, at first fearful, huddled behind closed doors even after the Master’s resurrection, are transformed by the Spirit and, as Jesus says in today’s Gospel, “they bear witness to him” (cf. Jn 15:27). No longer hesitant, they are courageous and starting from Jerusalem, they go forth to the ends of the earth. Timid while Jesus was still among them, they are bold when he is gone, because the Spirit changed their hearts.”

Pope Francis, Pentecost 2018

    My name is Margaret Birch. I have A husband who is living with dementia. I can’t get out to mass these days I haven’t been out to mass since Christmas. So I go online every day to different churches, today I came upon yours church, sadly I’m unable to get into your webpage. I’ve read your news page and all that you have going on in the church. It would be lovely to be able to receive the Mass and prayer times with you.
    Yours sincerely Margaret and Brian Birch
