Today
Is the Sixth Sunday of Ordinary time.  
 
In the Gospel today Jesus shows us the way to true happiness, through our attitudes of being.

The pupils from the College and SMH are on half term.   However, the Saturday afternoon Benediction (5.15pm) and the 11am Sunday Mass will take place as usual.

 

Praying with the Pope
Some new resources have just arrived from the Apostleship of prayer.   They are at the back of the church.   Please help yourself.

 

Avenue Closed
Note that the Avenue leading to the college will be closed from Monday to Wednesday.   Those who need to come to the parish will have to use the Lodge entrance by SMH.

 

Burial of Ashes
The ashes of the late Margaret Ryan will be interred in our cemetery on Thursday.   Please pray for the repose of her soul.

 

Visiting the housebound
As it is half term, Fr Tim will be visiting the housebound of the parish during this week.   If you know of someone who can’t get to Mass and who would appreciate a visit, please let Fr Tim know.

 

Next Sunday
The Gospel next Sunday contains some of the most radical teaching of Jesus.   Love, not vengeance is the way to God.
