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: Consistent Effort

A branch cannot thrive if it is cut away from the vine. It needs to have a consistent connection with the life-giving vine. The same is true in our spiritual life.We need to have a consistent and ongoing connection with the Lord. Such a connection happens through the Church. The Church is the way we remain connected to Jesus Christ.


Sunday Mass: Diversity and Religion

April 20th
While our society promotes diversity in all things, including religion, today's readings proclaim Jesus Christ is the one way to salvation. "There is no salvation through anyone else, nor is there any other name under heaven given to the human race by which we are to be saved."
