Sunday Reflection

John the Baptist lived a life of passionate commitment. His passion for justice and honesty spoke to the hearts of the crowds, tax-collectors and soldiers. His answer to the question “what should we do?” is surprisingly ordinary: Don’t cheat, share your surplus, don’t exploit people.
As we prepare for the birth of the Christ Child can we reflect on what does our lifestyle say about our faith in Christ? Do we hoard or share what we have with others, especially those who are poor and on the margins of society? How might we embrace the sacred in the ordinary, and the ordinary in the sacred?

This is our annual report for 2017. Thank-you to the hundreds of people who have given so much to our parish in the last 12 months.

Are you looking for lent activities this year? We have prepared several proposals for you.

St Elizabeth’s gets a sudden Ofsted and proves how good a school it is. Well done and thank-you to all the staff.
