3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fr. Duncan writes: This Sunday 24th January, we will celebrate the Sunday of the Word of God. This is a new feast instituted by Pope Francis last year which is to be devoted to the celebration, study and dissemination of the Word of God. Last year, we celebrated this day in our parish by inviting our readers to be recommissioned at Mass. This year that will not be possible. We also invited families to bring their bibles to Mass to be blessed. We had a great response, with lots of bibles – large and small, old and new being brought to church. Many of our young people also brought the bibles they use in school to be blessed. This year we will bless all your bibles. If you are coming to Mass, you may like to bring your bible with you. For those who join us on the live stream, have your bible near you during the Mass for the blessing.

The Holy Father is calling us to focus on how we listen to God speaking directly to each one of us in the scriptures and put that into action in our lives of today. As we listen to the readings at Mass each Sunday or weekday, God is speaking directly to each one of us. He is there supporting and guiding us on our pilgrim journey of faith.

Children’s Masses
While we are in lockdown, the Saturday Children’s Mass is suspended. The Children’s Mass on Sunday at 10.30am will be celebrated on Zoom to allow the children and their families to actively participate. Please join from 10:20am so we are ready to begin Mass promptly, Meeting ID: 844 0908 4760. When the lockdown ends, we can resume Masses in the hall and in the church.

COVID-19 Vaccinations
The development of a vaccine against COVID-19 presents an important breakthrough in protecting others as well as oneself from the virus; a virus which has not only caused a global pandemic and led to a huge loss of life but has also placed a great burden on healthcare workers and systems. Each of us has a duty to protect others from infection with its danger of serious illness, and for some, death. (Bishops’ Conference website). Now vaccinations are being rolled out I would encourage you to get your vaccination when you are invited to. Pope Francis received his last week and said that it was an ‘ethical duty’ for everyone to take the vaccine, to protect their own health and the health of others. ‘Everyone should get the vaccine. Without a vaccine, you are playing with health, life, but also with the health of others.’
