THE 4th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - 28th January 2024



My Dear Friends,



A Prophet is God’s spokesman: he speaks God’s word to His people. The closer we unite ourselves to Jesus, the more His words will become our own, so that we too may be spokesmen and spokeswomen for Him. We need to be His agents in furthering His Kingdom in this troubled world.

THE FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF THE LORD IN THE TEMPLE, also commonly called ‘Candlemass’. The Blessing of Candles with Procession and Sung Mass will take place this Friday at 6.30 pm in the evening. It is a beautiful liturgy which is the epilogue to the Christmas season. Forty days prior, Our Lord was born and now we see Him as the light to enlighten all peoples and to guide them on the way to salvation and union with God the Father.


THE HEALTHY CHURCH INITIATIVE. Thank you for taking part in this process which will help us to reflect on our Parish life and identify areas where we can improve our ongoing witness and mission outreach. We are hoping to receive the data results of our survey soon so that we may begin to target our Parish Mission response accordingly. 


THE ADULT BAPTISM AND CONFIRMATION CLASS will continue once more from this Sunday 28 th January. The classes will take place after the Parish Mass at the Vicarage.
