My homily for Christ the King Sunday – Who can you trust?
Challenge of the week: What is one thing you can do this week to show Him you trust Him more and are ready for heaven?
A short service followed by individual reconciliation. Confessions in Carrot River will be preceded by Mass at 7.
Confession/Reconciliation is a great way to prepare our hearts, minds, and souls, to truly welcome the Christ child at Christmas. Clean out the mess and make room for Christ to dwell within us. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity!

Listen to my homily for the 29th Sunday of Ordinary time – What’s in it for me?

No, we don’t get rewarded for coming to church, but it’s still nice to have dessert after Mass 🙂
