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: Thick Skin

July 06th
In this Sunday's readings we hear about people who were dealing with rejection.Certainly, Jesus suffered rejection many times, but the rejection by those who knew him and knew his family may have been the most difficult to bear. But despite the closed hearts and minds they encountered, despite the rejection they experienced, Ezekiel and Jesus continued to deliver God's message.

Sunday Mass: Gracious Action

June 28th
If we appreciated the care and generosity God has shown, and continues to show us, we would need no further motivation to make us generous and compassionate people.The "gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ" should lead us to gracious generosity just as it led the Christians of Corinth to respond to the appeal of Saint Paul.

Sunday Mass: A Birthday, A Vote

June 22nd
The conception,  birth, and naming of John the Baptist revealed that  God's plan was at work.  "All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, 'What, then, will this child be?' Surely the hand of the Lord was with him."That hand of the Lord is with every child. For at the moment of conception, it is God who brings a new life into existence.
