Pope Francis urges us to go to confession. "Everyone say to himself: ‘When was the last time I went to confession?’ And if it has been a long time, don’t lose another day! Jesus receives you. He will receive you with so much love! Be courageous, and go to confession.

Confessions are on Saturday at 16.45 or the First Saturday of the month after 08.00 Mass.

Season of Advent

Advent is a period of preparation, extending over four Sundays, before Christmas. For Catholics, advent has two parts. The first part of advent, which extends from the 1-17 Dec. draws our attention to the second coming of Christ at the end of time. Then the second part, 17th-onwards, is to prepare for the first coming of Christ - His birth in a stable at Bethlehem.

Sunday Mass: Today's Approved Religion

August 30th
Many people in our increasingly secular society would gladly endorse the religious approach of the Pharisees and scribes in this Sunday’s Gospel. (Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23) Those Pharisees and scribes had made the careful observance of tradition and ritual the heart of their religion.


Sunday Mass: Those Who Walk Away

August 25th
In this Sunday's Gospel (John 6:60-69), many people do not react as would be expected.

Sunday Mass: Worth Our Attention!

August 16th
Jesus Christ is the surest path to such a relationship with God. In this Sunday’s Gospel (John 6:51-58), Jesus makes that point by speaking of himself as the food and drink that we need if we are to have true life. As he says, “Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me.”
