** LATEST NEWS**

Congratulations Graduates!!

We are so proud of your achievement and give tremendous thanks to God for you.  As at Mass, celebrate well and give thanks this week at your graduation events.  Please keep in touch.


Please keep Robert Paylor in your prayers

With great sadness, CAL rugby player and Newman parishioner, Robert Paylor, suffered a spinal injury at CAL's rugby national championship game.  His injury paralyzed his lower body with limited motion in his arms.  With an uncertain future and a long and difficult journey ahead for Robert, we send him our prayers.

"I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day." - Abraham Lincoln

"Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference." - Max Lucado

Prayer for Robert

Lord,
You invite all who are burdened to come to you.  We thank You for being with Robert through thick and thin, in the best of times and in the most challenging of times. You are our rock, our fortress, our everything. You never forsake us.  With You, we discover complete serenity.

Allow Your healing Hand to touch Robert. Touch his soul with Your compassion; touch his heart with Your courage and infinite Love for all; and touch his mind with Your Wisdom.

Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring health in Robert's body and spirit that he may serve You with all his strength. In Your mercy, gently heal this precious life which you have created, now and forever.
Amen.
