3rd Week of Ordinary Time, Year B

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)

Masses & Services this Week [Sundays: Yr B, Weekdays: Yr 1]

Bible Study

The next Bible Study will take place on Thursday 29th of January in the Chapel at 7.30pm. We will look at the readings for the following Sunday - 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B):

These readings can be most easily found in an ordinary Sunday Missal. The gospel can also be read on our this Sunday’s Gospel page

Do you sometimes hear a reading at Mass and find yourself a bit puzzled by it? Do you sometimes feel that what you hear doesn’t quite seem to ‘ring true’, but have a sense that ‘perhaps there’s more to know’ that might make things clearer?

The homily (‘sermon’) at Mass isn’t the place to try to explain everything about all the readings. Its purpose is to draw something out for us, and to lead us into the celebration of the Eucharist. There are, of course, some questions about the faith that remain with us, but the Bible Study is very much the place to look at many of the others. Each week then, our Bible Study looks at the readings for the coming Sunday Mass with the underlying question, ‘How will these readings make us better Christians?’
