Pope Francis on the call to holiness- The Saints who encourage and accompany us:-

  1. The Letter to the Hebrews presents a number of testimonies that encourage us to “run will perseverance the race that is set before us”. It speaks of Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Gideon and others. Above all, it invites us to realise that “a great cloud of witnesses” impels us to advance constantly towards the goal. These witnesses may include our own mothers, grandmothers or loved ones. Their lives may not always have been perfect, yet even amid their faults and failings they kept moving forward and proved pleasing to the Lord.


Station Masses throughout Lent. All starting at 7.30 pm on Wednesday.
