Pentecost Sunday - Mass of Illumination

posted 24 May 2018, 22:15 by Michelle Virgona

Over the past weekend for the Feast of Pentecost, many families from Villa Maria joined in the Mass of Illumination. We processed with Fr Kevin and Fr Wills around the outside of Holy Name of Mary before entering into the church. The quiet, reverent, atmosphere allowed us to witness the coming of the Holy Spirit within the Eucharistic celebration. Many of our Confirmation candidates were present to commit to the Confirmation Sacramental program. 

May the Spirit Bless us... 
May the face of all creation shine upon us... 
The grace of life be within our soul. 
May we find in the eyes of a baby the light of the truth… 
And in the branches of the trees, arms to hold us… 
And in the warmth of sunshine be surrounded and caressed by gentle light of the moon… 
May our own heartbeat accompany us into fullness of life 
And as our feet meet the earth 
And the wind caresses our face 
Be blessed with all of creation as one with God.
