MESSAGES FROM FATHER JIM

In your prayers kindly remember the sick and those who care for them, the lonely, the handicapped, those isolated, and those who have died, especially Leo & Dolores Thomas.

INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY:  Theme: The Shepherd King On the last Sunday of Liturgical year, the church celebrates the universal sovereignty of Christ. Equally emphasized is the fact that his kingship different from that of any other. Like Yahweh the shepherd in the Ezekiel reading, Christ is the shepherd and provider of his people. He will evaluate human conduct in the final judgement on the basis of our willingness to the most celebrated passages in the New Testament. As Paul today explains to the Corinthians, Christ is a reign which will one day come to an end.

FROM THE RECTOR’S DESK:  Due to COVID virus, the protocol is to sanitize the pews after mass. In light of this, we are in need of volunteers to help with this task. Any help after mass would be appreciated.
