A simple ceremony will take place at the end of the 12 noon Mass this Sunday, when those who are caring for vulnerable people, young or old, are invited to the Blessing of Hands. We are aware that among us, there are people who spend their days in loving service of family members, friends, neighbours, and those who are dependent on their care. Their service of love is appreciated. We pray for them and we ask God to bless their work.
