Catechesis for Padre Pio's Prayer Groups
Father Luciano writes:
“We are at the end of this catechesis. The goal was to make us increasingly aware that Prayer Groups are also like womb communities: we must know how to welcome, we must know how to attract others. Above all, however, we need to foster that inner need for the wellbeing of our brothers and sisters, which stems from our love for Christ and was at the centre of Padre Pio's life”.
Catechesis of June 2021
Due to the closure of our Churches over the last year, there was no Sunday collections and this had implications for parishes, the diocese and priests. If you wish to donate online to the First or Second collections that normally take place on a Sunday or to Easter/Christmas Dues you can do so by using the DONATE button on the top of the screen which the diocese has asked us to place on our website.
When you click on the DONATE button at the top of the page. You also get an option to donate to St. Paul's Parish, Ayrfield, by way of a once off donation or if you wish join the Family Offering - planned giving, you can to set up a Weekly or Monthly offering and enter the amount of your donation. You will need to have your payment details (card/debit card or bank details) and your mobile phone to hand. Your mobile phone is needed because a confirmation pin number will be texted to it. Please also consider using the online payment facility to set up a regular contribution to the first and second collections. These collections are the primary sources of financial support for our priests and for Share. As you are aware we do not currently have the opportunity to support these collections in the traditional way, yet our priests and Share are still depending on your support. Thank you for your support, it is very much appreciated.
