Notre Dame Folk Choir

A BIG thank you to everyone who helped and took part in our exciting and joyful celebrations with the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir. We were delighted to welcome the choir, led by Steve Warner, and Friends of Notre Dame to Harold’s Cross for a lively and vibrant few days. Special thanks to our host families, who made the students feel so at home.
Well done to our House of Brigid Fellows Geoff, Rikki and Susanna for organising the event.

Prayer for Christian Unity

Creator of light,
illumine our path by the light of Christ who moves before us and leads us.
May he be a beacon for our pilgrimage.
Enlighten us and dwell within us.
We thank you for the gift of that unfading Star, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
Heal our divisions and draw us closer to the Light that we may find our unity in him. Amen.
           * * *
Even in the greatest darkness, God’s light is with us. Most perfectly, in the fullness of time, God sends Jesus Christ, who is the guiding light for all nations, the glory of God in the world, the source of divine light and life. The way ahead into unity with one another, into closer union with Christ, is not always clear. In our earnest attempts to build unity ourselves it is all too easy to lose sight of this fundamental message of the scriptures: that God does not abandon his people even in their failures and divisiveness. This is God’s message of hope for the whole world. God guides people of all kinds, by the light of the star, to where Christ, the light of the world, is to be found.
