📌 Reflecting on Last Week - 22 January 2023:

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Homily Take-Aways (Father Tom Gills)...

  • When is the last time you experienced a major event in your relationship with God?

  • Let us be Followers of Christ, not just Fans.

  • We do this in Community, with each other and supporting each other. "An ember removed from the fire soon grows cold."

  • God is calling - and equipping - ALL of us to be "Essential Personnel" in His Kingdom, and to help build His Kingdon.


🔭 Looking Ahead to Next Week - 29 January 2023:

Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time (liturgical color: Green)
