TWENTY-NINTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 20-21, 2018
In today’s Gospel Jesus teaches his disciples that whoever wishes to be great among them must be a servant, just as he came to be a servant. Today is World Mission Sunday – a reminder of our call to be good stewards of the Gospel and to support those who make evangelization their servant ministry throughout the world. Not to be a servant of the Gospel would be poor stewardship. But how do we serve the Gospel in our daily lives? How do we support others who serve those who have never heard the Gospel or who have chosen to reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
CHRISTMAS WITH A DIFFERENCE!
Can you make some room for an international student to learn what true British Festive hospitality can mean? Should you like to add that international element to your Christmas, learning another country’s traditions and enjoying the connection and friendship that such sharing brings?
HOST UK arranges for international students to enjoy brief homestays with UK hosts, one day, a weekend or, over the festive period-a three day visit. We need more hosts so that a smile such as Marine’s can spread across many more faces…and across our fragile world.
If you should like to know more, go to our website www.hostuk.org or leave us a message on
