The Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist: are the two main parts of the Mass. The image of “two tables” is often used by the Church. From listening to the word of God, faith is born and strengthened. In the Eucharist the Word made flesh gives Himself to us as our spiritual food.

We hope to visit the hospital after Mass on Sunday 22nd December to distribute the cards. All children and parents welcome.
