Sunday Reflection

……I will follow you wherever you go

……I will follow you wherever you go

In today’s Gospel Jesus is asking for consistency if we are to follow him. Jesus asks that we place real and sincere love at the top of our priorities.
Sincere love will bring the greatest happiness possible – to live in love and for love, in the big and the ordinary ways of life. How often we can be really happy at the end of the day for what we done that helped others.

Lord, teach me to love as you do, to remain true to others and to you. May your kingdom come in your people.

Update on Building Work at St Johns

St John bulding update 02New Centre in St Johns: thank-you to all those who have worked over the weekend. Some great work was done.

We have now broke through into the new kitchen upstairs and are getting ready to install a new staircase. We are also expecting the lift to be delivered any day now.

The electrics are tricky since the cabling for the whole Church runs through the old sacristy. The building needs a new 3 phase supply installed and new fuse boards throughout. DMReid is doing a great job with this. Thank-you to all.

Welcome to our website. If it's your first visit we hope it gives you some idea of what our parish is like. If you want to know more then there's nothing like coming to meet us and you would be very welcome. In the meantime, have a good look around and get in touch if we can help in any way.
