31st Week in Ordinary Time 2020.
1st –7th November.
Sunday: Solemnity of All Saints.
Today we celebrate the holiness of ordinary people. To be a saint is to be loved by God and to love God. That love carries an extraordinary promise: ‘we shall be like him because we shall see him as he really is’.
If you wish to attend a Sunday Mass you will need to book a place with the co-ordinator for each church. No booking is necessary for weekday Masses.
