We welcome our guest preacher for this All Saints Sunday - Fr Jonathan Ewer SSM,

who is a Provincial of the Society of the Sacred Mission.

Prayer Thought:  At All Saints’ tide we give thanks for and honour all the countless men and women who have been faithful to Jesus Christ and through whom the light of his Gospel continues to shine upon our world. And we ask too that their examples and prayers may encourage us to hear Jesus, to put our trust in him, and to live his way that, in some small part, the light of his Gospel / his Good News may shine through our lives.
