Sunday Parish Mass & Services

The Twentieth Sunday of The Year Yr.

Psalter/Daily Office Book Wk. 4

Sung Mass 11.00am

Good Morning and welcome to our Parish Mass. I was rather late in organising the Mass for Our Lady of The Assumption last Tuesday. In the event, people really did respond in a lovely way. First to those who helped with the liturgy. The readings, serving, music & singing; and helping me to clean the church beforehand. I was so grateful for even 10 minutes of your time. Getting the Hall ready was left to me! However, the food department was what came up trumps.(Not a word I like using these days!)

The preacher, Bro.Johannes Maertens CGS, spoke of the Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican and Protestant churches understanding of Mary, the Theotokos. He ended by quoting the Magnificat, the song of Mary. I wrote to thank him for his sermon. Back to the food department: the Orthodox Church provided the salad and sweet for us; the Catholic Church the cooking on the day, the Buddhist community provided the vegetarian and an Anglican some of the drinks!  Sharing food together and sitting together is one of Jesus Christ’s images of the Kingdom. Please always make time for one another, as the Lord makes time for us.
