Parish News for the 4th Week in Ordinary Time

Weekly News

This Sunday is the 4th in Ordinary Time.  In the Gospel reading we hear more about Jesus having a difficult time in his home synagogue, he is completely rejected and declares I tell you solemnly, no prophet is ever accepted in his own country. In so many parts of our world Jesus and his message of radical love are rejected. However all of us are called to carry that love in what we do and say, even to those dark places where it is needed so badly. Click here for the Scripture Readings.
