Reading I Isaiah 35.1 – 6a, 10 Responsorial Psalm Lord, come and save us.
Reading II James 5.7 - 10 Gospel Matthew 11.2 - 11
Food for Thought

For all the austerity of his life, John spoke to people in words that they could grasp. It was his austerity that drew people‘s respect and trust .He was a man who cared nothing for comfort, money, or fame, who could not be bought, and who could speak the truth without fear.

What is my reaction? Where does this lead me?

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH?     WELCOME!

Welcome to those who want to make our parish their faith home. You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest.

Thank you and welcome.
