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: Touched by the Trinity

May 25th
The Holy Trinity is a mystery that we will never fully understand,how can the human mind comprehend the One beyond understanding, the One without beginning or end, the One who by very definition is beyond us? But we have moments where the God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit lovingly reaches out and touches our hearts.This Sunday we are reminded to be aware of the presence and action of the Holy Trinity.

Sunday Mass: Forgivers of Sin

May 18th
The words of Jesus, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained," apply not only to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, they apply to all Christians. We are all to be forgivers of sin! And perhaps it is by showing such forgiveness that we most powerfully proclaim that the Lord is risen and has blessed us with his Spirit!

Sunday Mass: Like a Mother's Love

May 11th
Mothers pray for us and worry about us especially when we leave their protective care, and no matter their children's ages, this continues. On this day when we honor the women who have worried and prayed for us as we went out into the world, the Gospel reminds us that Jesus is worried and concerned about us as we go forth into the world.
