Community Council meeting Wed next 27th at 8pm in Hall.
Today’s readings are an interesting mix as we reflect on our Church and its mission. The Gospel passage is often seen as a reference to the origins of the Church and the papacy, as Jesus hands Peter ‘the keys of the kingdom of heaven’. But look what Jesus asks him just before this: ‘Who do you say I am?’ Everything we do as Church should come back to this question – who do we say that Jesus is?
