3rd Week of Ordinary Time, Year A

Almighty Father, the love you offer always exceeds the furthest expression of our human longing, for you are greater than the human heart.

Quote of the Week

“Those whose life is buying things should live as though they had nothing of their own; and those who have to deal with the world should not become engrossed in it.”

1 Corinthians chapter 7, Verses 30-31 (JB)

Ways of Praying

On Tuesday 24th of January at 7.30pm, we will have the next in our monthly series of sessions looking at different ways of praying. All of these different ways of praying come from the rich Catholic tradition. This time we will focus on the rhythm of prayer in the practice of the church.

Each session stands on its own (so don’t worry if you didn’t make the last one) and takes place in the meeting room. The sessions last about 45 minutes, and are a mixture of theory and practice. All welcome.

These readings can be most easily found in an ordinary Sunday Missal.
