Today’s Gospel deals with fraternal correction within the Christian community. Because the Church was born of divine love, it had to be a fellowship of love where each was responsible for the faith and holiness of his/her brothers and sisters.
The Journey in Faith will begin on Sunday, 15th October at 5pm in the church hall in North Walsham. This time, as well as enquirers, everyone is welcome to attend. Spread the word….
