HURRICANE SEASON 2024



From the shimmering blaze of an overheated Atlantic Ocean to gales in the underbelly of the stratosphere, all evidence points to a highly active 2024

Hurricane Season that could rival the busiest years on record.

Forecasters have predicted there's an 85% chance that this year's hurricane season, (which began on June 1st), will be more active than normal, with the potential for 17 to 25 named storms (which boast wind speeds of at least 39 mph).  The outlook also predicts that eight to thirteen of those storms will develop into hurricanes (which have winds of at least 74 mph), with four to seven strengthening to major hurricane status.

We cannot stress the importance of being prepared during the Hurricane Season. 

“Being prepared could save your life.”


 

  

“Continuing Together in Faith and Participation”

  

 The 2024 Archdiocesan Annual Appeal has begun. We are hoping that through your generosity, kindness and support we can achieve our goal. We can appreciate that many of you are still experiencing some financial hardships due to our economy here in the Bahamas, but be assured that we are most appreciative of your donations, no matter how small. 

For those of you wishing to make a contribution, envelopes can be collected from the Parish Office during the week. Alternately, funds can be remitted online and for those instructions kindly contact the Parish Office. Please be sure to include your name and the name of your Parish for record-keeping purposes.

 As a team, we can make a difference.

Continuing Together in Faith and Participation” 


 

 

In both human and divine relationships, there can be no romance without a reverent listening to the other. When we make room in our lives for silence, the heaven and earth within us find each other. Then the Word of God is able to put down deep roots. These listening roots sense our desire for bonding with the Holy One.  


            

 Pope Francis' Urbi et orbi meditation

 Pope Francis meditated on the calming of the storm from the Gospel of Mark during the prayer service over which he presided on the steps of St Peter's Basilica on Friday evening. Here is the full text.

“When evening had come” (Mk 4:35). The Gospel passage we have just heard begins like this. For weeks now it has been evening. Thick darkness has gathered over our squares, our streets and our cities; it has taken over our lives, filling everything with a deafening silence and a distressing void, that stops everything as it passes by; we feel it in the air, we notice in people’s gestures, their glances give them away. We find ourselves afraid and lost. Like the disciples in the Gospel we were caught off guard by an unexpected, turbulent storm. We have realized that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together, each of us in need of comforting the other. On this boat… are all of us. Just like those disciples, who spoke anxiously with one voice, saying “We are perishing” (v. 38), so we too have realized that we cannot go on thinking of ourselves, but only together can we do this.
