YEAR OF PRAYER: November is traditionally the month when the Church reflects on the significance of people we have loved and who have died. Specifically, this weekend, we remember all those who have died in war. Fundamental to our Christian belief is that Jesus rose from the dead.  Alongside this we believe and trust that after our own death we will rise again. The Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection and so tried to ridicule belief in it. Jesus cuts through their question highlighting that God is a God of the living not of the dead. This certainty of faith gives meaning to our own life and enables us to trust that we will meet again those we love and have lost, not on this earth, but in the fullness of life with God.

BAPTISM: We welcome Pasquale de Martino into the faith family of the Church. Please keep him, his family and friends in your prayers on this special day.
