Parish News for the 27th Week in Ordinary Time

October 5, 2023 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday is the 27th in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus tells the Parable of the Wicked Tenants, it is an allegory about those who would not accept Jesus as God’s Son. The challenge for us as Christians is to make known the love of Christ to those around us in what we do and say. Click here for the Scripture Readings.
