Sunday Scripture

            God’s love is abundant and life-giving. Time and again, the People of God tested God’s love for them. He continued to call them back to the covenant. God continues to call us to faithfulness, as well. When we fail to love God by the actions we choose, his love does not fail us. God gives forgiveness to all who sincerely ask.

              In the desert, God was with Moses at the rock and produced flowing water for the thirsty people. In the Gospel, Jesus sat at the well and greeted the Samaritan woman. He offered her living water. Paul taught that the love of God has been poured out for us, and even though we are sinners, Christ has died on the cross for us.           

Parish Office is open on Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 4pm and every Second and Fourth Sunday in each month from 9.00am to 5.00pm.
