Sunday 28th June 2020 – PRIDE WEEKEND
Gardiner Street Gospel Choir Mass
13th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Cycle A)
Readings: 2 Kings 4:8-11.14-16 Psalm 88:2-3.16-19 Romans 6:3.8-11 Matthew 10:37-42
Welcome to Mass this evening. As James said, we’re celebrating Pride, and we’re welcoming every member of the LGBT community to join us, and celebrate with us, the Eucharist. The message from our Gospel is all about welcome, but it’s also about the cost. And indeed, over the years, the LGBT+ community has, and continues to suffer, the cost of being Christian.
Thanks to all who have donated to the Church through our website. Your generous contributions help in the running expenses of the Church and are greatly appreciated, especially in this difficult time.
You can know donate online in three easy steps. For more details visit our website and click the red DONATE button.
Pray with Pope Francis
Pope’s August prayer intention: people in the maritime world
The life of sailors or fishermen and their families is very difficult. Sometimes they are victims of forced labor or are left behind in distant ports. The competition of industrial fishing and the problem of pollution make their work even more complicated. Without the people of the sea, many parts of the world would starve. Let us pray for all those who work and live from the sea, among them sailors, fishermen and their families.
