to book a place –  always safer to book

Saturday Vigil Mass 10th October

Sunday Mass 18th October 2020

This weekday we celebrate Mission Sunday – special collection


Entry: From the rising of the sun to its setting  great is the name of the Lord,
high above the heavens is his glory.
Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever.  Amen.



Brothers and sisters, we are here together to give God God’s place in our lives and in our world;
to ask for healing and forgiveness
to hear the word of God and to pray for the world;
to give thanks in the Eucharist
and to renew our communion with God and each other.

Let’s call to mind our sins

First reading Isaiah 45:1,4-6 

Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whom he has taken by his right hand
to subdue nations before him and strip the loins of kings,
to force gateways before him that their gates be closed no more:
‘It is for the sake of my servant Jacob, of Israel my chosen one,
that I have called you by your name, conferring a title though you do not know me.
I am the Lord, unrivalled; there is no other God besides me.
Though you do not know me, I arm you that men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun
that, apart from me, all is nothing.’

Psalm 95

Go into the world, alleluia, and teach all nations, alleluia.

Ps 95 Go into Jimmy


GV: Alleluia

Matthew 22:15-21 

Give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar

The Pharisees went away to work out between them how to trap Jesus in what he said. And they sent their disciples to him, together with the Herodians, to say, ‘Master, we know that you are an honest man and teach the way of God in an honest way, and that you are not afraid of anyone, because a man’s rank means nothing to you. Tell us your opinion, then. Is it permissible to pay taxes to Caesar or not?’ But Jesus was aware of their malice and replied, ‘You hypocrites! Why do you set this trap for me? Let me see the money you pay the tax with.’ They handed him a denarius, and he said, ‘Whose head is this? Whose name?’ ‘Caesar’s’ they replied. He then said to them, ‘Very well, give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar – and to God what belongs to God.’



That we, and all people of faith, may recognise and respect the authority of the state, and that the state will likewise respect the conscience and belief of us all.
We pray for those responsible for drafting legislation for the common good.

Lord, hear us

On World Mission Sunday we pray that the church may be effective in sharing the Gospel, in promoting peace, feeding the hungry, and supporting the needs of the most vulnerable and most needy.
Lord, hear us

For peace in the Holy Land, the Yemen, Armenia and Azerbaijan, the Middle East and Afghanistan, and everywhere where people’s lives are spoiled or taken from them by violence or neglect.  Lord, hear us
