14th October, Twenty-Eight Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,

       The young man who approached Jesus in today’s gospel asks the vital question we all need to know the answer to. What is the primary purpose of this life? The answer is more than just a challenge in the ordinary sense of the word, but Jesus assures us that with God’s help we can indeed attain that goal.


Kerala Flooding

The fact that a million people were displaced and many losing everything should open our eyes to the hard road many have to travel just to stay alive.

The local Keralan community has direct links with the areas of need. So if anybody wishes to make a donation towards this good cause, please take an orange envelope marked – Keralan Flood Relief. You will find these on the offertory table – Please return your donation in due course either at the Offertory or in the Retiring collection at any Sunday Mass or take it to the Presbytery.


Finally: Bob, to his pal Pat, “I have just this week got my new hearing aid. It’s the Rolls Royce job, mind you it cost me dearly but it’s perfect”.

            Pat, “I’m delighted to hear your good news. What kind is it, did you say?”

            Bob, “It’s exactly twelve thirty”

Thank you & God Bless,

Fr John
