THANK YOU for the total of £490.65 in the collection last week for the Priests’ Retirement Fund.
THURSDAY MORNING AFTER MASS there will be the usual coffee morning, to which all are welcome.
This week Matthew takes us ‘up the hill’ with Jesus and begins his ‘Sermon on the Mount’, often called the essence of Jesus’ teaching. We’ll hear more of it in the coming weeks. We can listen to it and hopefully pat ourselves on the back for measuring up to the high ideals presented by Jesus, but because we fail so much we can be consoled by Paul’s realism and Zephaniah’s insistence on the need to be humble.
It has been good to see people gradually finding their way back to regular worship after the uncertainties of Covid. Soon we hope that parents will bring their children to Mass, and we can restart the religious teaching for them once again. It is in your own hands.
