WEEKLY REFLECTIONS
As you may be aware, Royden Dsouza an active member of our parish community, is being ordained to the permanent diaconate this year. As part of his formation we have been requested by the Office of the Permanent Diaconate to provide his reflections on the readings at mass. As such he will be providing reflections every Tuesday at our weekday masses. Please do support him with your prayers as he approaches this important milestone. Thank you.
