MATER CHRISTI PARISH SEATON NEWS

11TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
16th June 2024


Link to Parish Bulletin 

The Gospel reading today contains
the parable of the mustard seed. It reminds
us that through God's care and
blessing great things can grow
from even the smallest of efforts.
It is important that we place our thoughts,
our words, our actions, our ideas
and inspirations into God's hands,
and that we invite God to bless and to use
all of these things for the greater
good of the kingdom and for
the greater good of the Church on Earth
