Almighty Father, the love you offer always exceeds the furthest expression of our human longing, for you are greater than the human heart.

Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention for January 2022
For true human fraternity We pray for all those suffering from religious discrimination and persecution; may their own rights and dignity be recognized, which originate from being brothers and sisters in the human family.
Our weekly Bible Study will obviously NOT take place at the present time. Even so, the Bible remains a treasure that can give us what we need. The readings for 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time are:
- Jeremiah ch 1 vs 5-19
- Psalm 70 (71 in most Bibles)
- 1 Corinthians ch 12:31-13:13
- Luke ch 4 vs 21-30
These readings can be most easily found in an ordinary Sunday Missal.

Dear Parishioners and all people of goodwill, this is a most difficult time and it tries our faith and our Christian friendship. With the threat of coronavirus and aware of the vulnerability of some of our parishioners, of course all of us as human beings are delicate and vulnerable to risks that come our way. I am suggesting that if the crisis worsens, let us identify people who may need our prompt response. Take a phone number, know the address, enquire from a family member so that in case of a worse case scenario we are able to offer material support, hope and words of closeness to those who may remain at home - a telephone conversion is a pastoral response. Or we can use Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram to keep up-to-date. I am appealing for volunteers for this. I know we have wonderful people.
