Weekly News

This Sunday is the 24th in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus tells his followers The Parable of the Lost Sheep. The Shepherd leaves the 99 to look for the one who is lost. It is a beautiful image of God. However far we may wander, God is there too, looking for us and rejoicing to bring us home again.
