Parish News for the 5th Week in Ordinary Time

February 2, 2023 by James Elston in Weekly News

This Sunday is the 5th in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus says that we are to be salt and light in the world. Salt flavours invigorates and enhances and light illuminates what is dark. In these ways we bring God’s love to those around us and draw them closer to him. Click here for the scripture readings.
