17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today Father Martin presided and Father Mervyn concelebrated and preached on today’s Gospel. He pointed out that two things were necessary in the Parable of the Pearl of Great Price and the Treasure in the Field: first recognition and then the willingness to sacrifice everything to obtain them. When we recognised Jesus as the greatest treasure, we had to be prepared to give everything for Him. Every time we come to Mass we hold Him in our hand and what greater treasure could there be than that.

Yesterday’s Saturday Shop took over £220 and last week £218; our share of the New Directions Choir Concert amounted to £238.88


We used to collect stamps for charity but we stopped when we were no longer able donate them. We now have a new source so please start brining them again. Cut them from your envelopes with a reasonable border, bag them up and bring them to church with you.
