FAITH IN ACTION: Everyone loves a taste of something delicious, so on Sunday 24th September, after the 11.30 Mass, the Faith in Action group is inviting parishioners to share in a food tasting programme called’ THE WORLD ON A PLATE’. It is hoped that the diverse cultures and backgrounds in our parish community will be represented. Please help to make this occasion a success by contributing a small  traditional dish from your country of origin to share with us. If you and your family or friends would like to prepare something for this event, please contact the parish office 02085203647 before 1st September 2017.

Reflection: Lord, may I never forget the sacrifice that gives me life.  We are saved by faith, not works, but we live out our faith by loving others and caring for their needs. May we, keep our eyes open for those who might need our help as we walk together in this journey of life.
