Parish News for the 33rd Week in Ordinary Time

November 16, 2023 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday is the 33rd in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus tells the Parable of the Talents, saying to his disciples, You have shown you can be faithful in small things, I will trust you with greater, come and join your master’s happiness. The key to our Christian life and our happiness is indeed, faithfulness in the small things. Click here for the scripture readings.
