Building Works in St. John's Church.

The scaffolding is down and the heating works are complete. Hopefully it will help during the winter. There is more work to be done in the church. The underpinning work which began outside the church needs to be completed inside over the next week or so, which will create more dust. After that we will do a more thorough clean up. The weekday masses will again be celebrated in St. John's Church from this week. We apologise again for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience.

"The ground you are standing on is holy ground" Ex 3:5

This week stresses the importance of having an appreciation of the goodness of God's creation. We all have to examine how we live in harmony with God's creation, how we use and share the goods of the earth and what we pass on to future generations.

Exploring the Sunday Gospel and Readings

Would you like to have a better understanding of the Gospel and the Readings you hear on Sunday? If you would, why not come to our meeting which is on Tuesday morning in the St. John's Parish Centre. We start again, on Tuesday September 2nd at 10.30am and will finish by 11.30am. So why not come along and see the Gospel come alive for you? This exploration of the Sunday Gospel and Readings is led by Mike Riordan.

 
Thought for the week

When we pray more often than not we are asking for something.  We are looking for a cure, a helping hand or for our problems to be fixed.  When there is what appears to be a delayed response, we can lose patience with God.  As a consequence, we open our mouths in anger against the God who is our rock when we feel nothing but silence.  But try to remember that God sent His only begotten Son into the world so that everyone who believes in Him would be saved.  Let not your disbelief and impatience condemn you or lock you into a world of isolation and loneliness.  Trust in the God who has promised eternal life.  He will never abandon his believers......
