This week

16th July 2017 - 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Yr A)
"The seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest."


The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower.
From the beginning till now the entire creation, as we know, has been groaning in one great
act of giving birth; and not only creation, but all of us who possess the first fruits of the Spirit,
we too groan inwardly as we wait for our bodies to be set free
Romans 8:22-23

Feast Days

Saturday 22nd July - St Mary Magdalene

St. Mary Magdalene, Pray for Us
St Mary Magdalene, woman of many sins, who by conversion became the beloved of Jesus, thank you for
your witness that Jesus forgives through the miracle of love.
You, who already possess eternal happiness in His glorious presence, please intercede for me, so that some
day I may share in the same everlasting joy. Amen.
