HYMNS FOR THIS SUNDAY'S MASS

Entrance:
Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!
His the sceptre, his the throne;
Alleluia! His the triumph,
His the victory alone.
Hark! The songs of peaceful Sion
Thunder like a mighty flood.
Jesus, out of every nation,
Has redeemed us by his blood.

Alleluia! Not as orphans
Are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! He is near us;
Faith believes nor questions how.
Though the cloud from sight received him
When the forty days were o'er,
Shall our hearts forget his promise,
"I am with you evermore"?

Alleluia! Bread of angels
Here on earth our food, our stay;
Alleluia! Here the sinful
Come to you from day to day.
Intercessor, friend of sinners,
Earth's Redeemer, plead for me
Where the songs of all the sinless
Sweep across the crystal sea.

Alleluia! King eternal,
He the Lord of lords we own:
Alleluia! born of Mary,
Earth His footstool, heaven His throne:
He within the veil, has entered,
Robed in flesh, our great High Priest:
He on Earth both Priest and victim
In the Eucharistic feast!

Communion Two
Be still, and know I am with you, 
Be still, I am the Lord.
I will not leave you orphans.
I leave you with my world. Be one.

You fear the light may be fading, 
You fear to lose your way.
Be still, and know I am near you. 
I'll lead you to the day and the sun.

Be glad the day you have sorrow. 
Be glad, for then you live. 
The stars shine only in darkness, 
and in your need I give my peace

Recessional:
Where the love of Christ unites us
There God is found
Where we meet as love invites us
There God is found
Let us come with jubilation 
To the God our salvation
Love enlivens all creation 
There God is found 

Where we meet without division
There God is found
Free from anger and derision
There God is found
Let all bitter feuds be ended 
Strife resolved and foes befriended
Pride and fear by love transcended 
There God is found

Where the blessed live for ever
There God is found
Bonds of love no pain can sever
There God is found
Christ in glory we implore you
Let us with the saints adore you 
Love resplendent flows before you
There God is found

MESSAGE FROM CAFOD (DIOCESE OF SALFORD)
Thank you for your support over the last few months with our Lent and Ukraine appeals. We really are grateful for the truly generous donations we’ve received from the Catholic Community.
You will know that we don’t just look to deal with the effects of poverty, but also to tackle the causes. We continue our focus on food as we introduce our new campaign Fix the Food System. Parish Volunteers who campaign with CAFOD will be receiving information on this and more can be found on our
Fix the Food System webpage

LIFE IN THE SPIRIT SEMINARS
The next session is from 6-8pm on Friday 3rd June. Fr. Isidore will be the speaker that night. Subsequent sessions will be on each Friday night from 6-8pm, all in St. Patrick’s Church, until the final session, which will be on a Saturday, 25th June at the same time (6-8pm). There’s a notice at the back of the church with more details.

FIRST COMMUNIONS
We have the final meeting for the St. Patrick’s Group on Saturday 4th June at 10am and then they will make their First Communion the next day (5th June) at 2.30pm.

THE YOUTH MASS
I have now put a photographic report of this Mass on the website. It is on the Past Events page. I am hoping that the young people will return to do a couple of slots (Offertory and recessional) on 12th June at the 10am Mass, the 46th anniversary of my ordination as a priest – Filipino choir please note that you don’t need to prepare an Offertory hymn that day!

CONFIRMATION PROGRAMME
There will be a celebration of confirmation next Saturday at 3pm for those who have been prepared by Fr. Callum. Then, on the next day (Sunday – the Feast of Pentecost) there will be three more confirmations during 10am Mass. I will also be doing the confirmations at St. Mary’s Failsworth on the following Saturday (June 11th), so Fr. Michael Job will be saying Mass at St. Patrick’s that day.

THE READINGS THIS SUNDAY
“May they all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
These, of course, are the words of Jesus praying for his disciples as he’s about to go to his death. But his prayer is surely for all of us too. It’s a prayer for a true communion of people, that’s to be seen in the relationship of the Trinity itself, where we can speak of oneness, even when there’s clearly difference.
The ethnic mix of many of our communities has changed so much in recent years because of the movement of peoples. And hateful racism is not simply targeted at black footballers on social media. Immediately after Brexit, the number of racist incidents rose significantly across the country and all too many people saw newcomers as unwelcome. It’s not without reason that footballers and others in this country have been ‘taking the knee’ since the killing of George Floyd in the United States.
Back in the year 2000, Pope John Paul II suggested an aim for the beginning of the millennium that he thought the rest of us might share. Like Jesus in the Gospel, his prayer was that we achieve a ‘spirituality of communion’. He described this as being able to see God shining on the face of the brothers and sisters around us, to know how to "make room" for people who are different, and to bear "each other's burdens".

THIS WEEK’S FEASTS OR SPECIAL DAYS
Tuesday 31st May – The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Wednesday, 1st June – St. Justin. He was born in Samaria in 110 and, on becoming a Christian, wrote two great works in defence of Christianity (the ‘Apology’ and the ‘Dialogue with Trypho’). These gave us information on the early Christian communities. In about the year 165, he was arrested and condemned to death.
Thursday 2nd June – Ss Marcellinus and Peter. They were martyred in the persecutions of Diocletian around the year 300. Peter, when he was already in prison, invited his fellow prisoner, the priest Marcellinus, to baptise their gaoler whom Peter had converted.
Friday, 3rd June: St. Charles Lwanga and Companions.  Charles and 21 others all under the age of 25 were martyred by burning or beheading under a persecution of Christians of all denominations by the deviant King Mwanga of Uganda in 1885/7.

CARITAS SALFORD ANNOUNCES
REOPENING OF MORNING STAR ACCOMMODATION

Following improvement works, Caritas Salford is delighted to announce the re-opening of their Morning Star supported accommodation for people who are homeless. From this week, the Caritas team will welcome 20 single homeless men who would otherwise be housed in poor quality, unsupported temporary accommodation. Many will have been sleeping rough or ‘sofa surfing’ and will benefit from having their own room in a supported project.
Could you help by sponsoring a room at Morning Star? Please visit www.caritassalford.org.uk/service-view/morning-star-hostel/ or call 0161 817 2285.
