Parish News for the 7th Week in Ordinary Time

Weekly News

This Sunday is the 7th in Ordinary Time.  In the Gospel reading Jesus teaches that we must love even our enemies and be compassionate as God is compassionate. In order for us to be shaped by these virtues we must first know ourselves as loved and forgiven by God. As S.John teaches, we only know how to love because we are loved by God first. 

Thank you
To Fr Guy for coming to celebrate the mass this Sunday, sadly he will have to dash off afterwards to celebrate the Sunday mass at S.Benet’s.
