Third Sunday of Lent
8th March 2015
From Our Parish Priest
Honour God’s Temple….and you are that Temple
The ten commandments are for the sake of freedom from slavery: from the worship of false gods, including ourselves, and from distorted relationships between God and other people. Some of the contemporary gods were recalled by Pope Francis at Christmas last year when he spoke of the 15 diseases of the Church today: narcissism, working too hard, pride, self-centredness, envy, jealousy and greed to name just a few.

The story of Karen
Family Kit outreach to local families
When the Parish Team saw the Family Prayer Kits put together by the Diocese , they thought they were a great idea. The Kits are aimed at Lenten preparation and participation by children. So after speaking to Michael Hopley, the principal at OLQP Primary School and the Catechist Coordinator for our parish, they decided to give a pack to each family in our Catholic Primary School and to each student in the State Schools.
