arranged the chairs, and to Luke Sheehan for all his help. Also sincere thanks to our reader, Extraordinary
Ministers, T.J. our server, – and all who held umbrellas for ministers during Holy Communion. Thanks also to the very large crowd who attended and prayed at their loved ones graves.
May they all Rest in Peace.

Matthew 13:44-52
1. Have you ever found yourself saying ‘that was worth it’ after giving up something (time, pleasure, money, etc.)? What was the treasure that made the sacrifice worthwhile?
2. The ‘kingdom of heaven’ is when God is really the ruler in our life. What treasures have you obtained when you
allow God to be at the centre of your life?
3. In life we gather a lot of things, some good and some bad. The wise person in the kingdom of heaven knows how to sit down and make decisions on what to keep and what to discard. When have you undertaken that kind of discernment? What have you discarded? What have you retained?
John Byrne osa
