The image of the fruitless tree in the gospel is a call to take a look at our lives and allow our comfortable lives to be disturbed by the gospel message. When the man comes looking for fruit on the fig tree what will he find? The call to follow Jesus is not an easy one. We need to look at ways to bring peace, hope, love and justice into our communities every day. We use the gift of Lent as an opportunity to identify areas where we can produce more fruit. How are we living? What can we do to make the changes during this Lenten season and beyond?



There are two defibrillators in the parish. These are potential lifesavers but their usefulness depends on the availability of a sufficient number of people who are trained to use them and be ‘on call’. A new training course is being planned and it is hoped that a sufficient numbers of volunteers will come forward for training to ensure coverage for the area.  All interested should give their names to John McGrath (57379.)
