FAMILY MASS ON WEBCAM FROM YELLOW WALLS CHURCH AT 10.00am ON SUNDAYS

FAMILY MASS ON WEBCAM FROM YELLOW WALLS CHURCH – THEME OF JESUS CHRIST, OUR KING.

 

Next Sunday, 22nd November 2020, at 10.00am we will have our Webcam Family Mass from Yellow Walls Church (www.yellowwallsparish.ie). We hope that the Mass will help all children and families connect to a Mass in which they can feel a sense of involvement. Attached is a file with colouring pictures along with the readings, prayers and hymns for the Mass

This Sunday is the last Sunday of the Church Year and is called the feast of Jesus Christ the King. Today we celebrate Jesus as our King. We will try and explain to the children that we are not celebrating Jesus as the King of any country in the world but as the King of our lives. Christians believe that the greatest example of what is the best way for us to live our lives is to follow the example of Jesus. That is why we call Jesus our King.

We invite you to connect into the Mass with your children of all ages on Sunday morning.

Every blessing and good wish, Fr. Kevin Moore
