Second Collection – Holy Places – Sunday 13th September
The Holy Places of the Holy Land are the concrete, historical witness on earth of the story of our Biblical Faith and the sites our LORD lived among during His life, death and resurrection. From there the Good News spread throughout the world. A Christian community has remained there continually till now through trials, sacrifices and martyrdom. This Papal collection allows this community to survive as a local Church, to preserve the sacred sites of our Catholic faith and to keep the Christian message of peace and hope alive.

Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time (Ezek 33:7-9 Rom 13:8-10 Matthew 18:15-20)
To listen is to Love Matthew reminds us of Jesus’ promise “…where two or more meet in my name I will be with them”. In all the practical ways we look after each other, we are saying; ‘your concerns are my concerns’. Nothing is too small or insignificant in our marriage, and my beloved is beside me to call me back to our life together.
