Thanks, too, for the parish website - I can check the bulletin and Father Leo's sermon every week!


World Mission Sunday


Pope Francis has released his message

for World Mission Sunday,

focusing on the need to gather round

the person of Jesus and to heed his call

to “proclaim the Gospel of the love of God

 the Father in the Power of the Holy Spirit.

He also emphasised the Church’s role as being

“missionary in nature” and that “young people

 are the hope of mission.”
