Today, Mission Sunday, Catholics worldwide are asked to recommit themselves to mission and to the gospel message. Today we pray especially for missionaries but we also recommit ourselves to following the gospel message in prayer, in our daily lives, in our relationships with others and in sharing that message. We are all called to be missionaries wherever we live; we are all invited to love and serve God by loving and serving others. Can we be missionaries to our own families and to the people around us? That is one of the more challenging tasks in our society today.

Jesus had spent much time teaching his followers that discipleship was a life of service, a life of giving oneself for others. In spite of that James and John were thinking of what they could get out of it. For Jesus, for the apostles and for each one of us, the glory of God is revealed when we allow God to work through us as we give ourselves for others.
The next cutting of grass in the cemetery will take place on Wed next 23rd October
Private Eucharistic Adoration will take place in Emly parish church on each Saturday in October from 3pm to 6pm. We ask the Lord to strengthen our communion with him and with one another in our parish community.
