Prophets live a hard life. If they struggle with their vocation, it is because of its demands. Speaking God’s word can make us unpopular; not to speak it gives us responsibility for our neighbor’s fate. The first reading assumes that we are linked by unbreakable bonds as members of the human family. In the gospel, Jesus calls on the individual Christian, and then the community, to win back the person who has erred. The entire community shares the responsibility of witnessing to the gospel, and it is the disciples together who must decide when a member is to be excluded from their communion. Yet this is not to be done without heartfelt prayer for the sinner’s repentance—a prayer for which Jesus promises an answer. He is in our midst when we gather in his name. The second reading presents the attitude which must govern the Church’s decisions regarding its members. Each of us has a responsibility toward the other members of the Church, and toward all God’s children, to keep the commandments. Love of our neighbor is the key and the answer to all God’s commands. It is much easier to win over a wrongdoer to repentance if we seek out that person in love.


Weekly sessions resume on Thurs the 21st, downstairs in the Hall in Room 2 after the 9AM Mass. These involve a 1-hour gathering for anyone interested in expanding their understanding and appreciation of our Catholic faith and a video presentation on various topics, such as the life of Saints, Scripture studies, etc. Refreshments and good company are included.

No fees and attendance commitment required. Come and see!

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
