The good shepherd is very possessive of his sheep. They are his personal property and a gift from the Father. He knows them very well and promises them the greatest gift, life forever. No one will ever be able to steal them; like a nomadic shepherd, he will fight off thieves. This close relationship of Jesus with the believer is modelled on the loving union of Father and Son. An anxious love. What must be the attitude of believers face to face with their shepherd? They listen to their master’s voice and follow him so as not to become lost. But we are not the only ones he longs to guide and protect. The reading from Acts insists on the universality of salvation. We who experience God’s love should lead others to him. The vision described in Revelation shows innumerable people worshipping God in paradise. They have been washed clean in the blood of the sacrificed Lamb, who is at the same time their shepherd. With him their joy will last eternally.

  • to assist caregivers and family members facing a terminal illness

Save the date! We hope to see you all there.

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
