Pastoral Visitation with a Difference!

Fr Plinio Poncina, pastor of Stella Maris parish, in Rome put up signs last Wednesday announcing a priest would be visiting the neighbourhood to bless houses. The signs, which indicated a date and gave a time frame, is a common practice in Italy during Eastertide. “It was a great surprise today when, instead of the pastor, the one ringing the door bells was Pope Francis,” the press office said. “With great simplicity, he interacted with the families, he blessed a dozen apartments” and left rosaries for the residents.

Sacred Heart Church Bomaderry Piety Stall – Open after 9:30am Sunday Mass. For all your Confirmation and Communion and religious gifts and cards. Other items by special order from the catalogue.
