Sunday Collection: Came to £1405. Thank you for your generosity as always. There will be a Development Collection taken up after communion today.
Today is the 32 Sunday of the Year. Because we are coming to the end of the Church’s year the readings at Mass concentrate on our last days on earth. We stand at the Creed and say “I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come” St. Augustine put it more poetically “We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song”
