Weekly News

This Sunday is the 32nd in Ordinary Time.  In the Gospel reading Jesus notices that it is a poor widow who gives everything she has for the work of the Temple whilst the rich always hold back. This story should cause us to reflect on how much we can give to help the life of the church. Click here for the Scripture Readings and then Click Here to see how you can give regularly.
