Dear friends,

This Sunday is the 13th in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus visits the house where a little girl has just died. With the tender words in Aramaic, ‘Talitha Kuom’ Jesus bids the lifeless girl to rise from her bed and so brings her back to life. This miracle powerfully prefigures the eternal life we will all share with Jesus if we trust and believe in him.Click here for the Scripture readings

This Sunday is also S.Paul’s Patronal Festival Please support our sister church, S. Paul’s in Camden Square, as it celebrates the Feast of Ss Peter and Paul on the 27th June. Following the 11.30am Festival Mass, there will be a summer garden party with lunch and cocktails from about midday. All welcome.
