TODAY    [1] On the Thirty-Second Sunday of the Year we celebrate the Prophet Jesus, lover of the poor who raises them up to teach us true humanity, authentic Christianity. The impoverished widow who out of her poverty gives everything teaches the rich and wealthy who give their ‘left-overs’ to God! To follow Jesus is to give everything!

[2] It is also Remembrance Sunday when we remember all who have perished (both military and civilian) in the carnage of war so often perpetrated on humanity in the past more than 100 years. This year this Remembrance is especially important, being the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War. We offer a Mass for the Peace of the World.

[3] Following Mass we gather (from 12.45 to 2.45pm) for our Parish Forum – all invited so that your voice may heard and you can contribute to the growth of our parish life and mission. Please make this meeting a priority!

[4] Signed Mass for the Deaf at 3.00pm.

NEXT SUNDAY:   [1] As we draw near to the Season of Advent on the Thirty-Third Sunday of the Year we celebrate the Lord who will come again to bring about the final transformation of the whole of creation. We are as ever called to be alert to the ‘Signs of the Times’ and play our part working as co-creators with our God in the renewal and transformation as Christ becomes ‘all in all’, the fulness of Creation gathered into His Body.

[2] We are celebrating Baptism with some of our children and renewing our own commitment to to living as Children of God, Children of the Light, Prophets of Good news to the world. Please pray for our children and their families.
