Gracious God, your
Son Jesus Christ
gave us the confidence
to call you Father. We believe you care for
us. We believe also
in the communion
of saints. With
confidence we ask
St. Jude, patron of
difficult cases, to pray
with us, for our
special intentions....
Thank you, God,
for hearing our prayer.

Child Protection Statement

Love Overcame by Julie Palmer

The clock of life is wound but once
And no one has the power.
To tell just where the hands will stop
- at late or early hour.

To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one’s health is more.
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
- as no one can restore.

The present only is our own
live, love and work with all goodwill.
Depend not on tomorrow
For the clock may then be still.

Robert H Smith
