Weekly News

This Sunday is the 30th in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus encounters the Bartimaeus, who asks for his sight to be restored. As always with the Miracles of Jesus there is a double meaning, the outward healing of Bartimaeus and the inner healing of spiritual blindness that we all need.  Click here for the readings.
