a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the Sunday Holy Mass celebration. The message of God’s Word for this Sixteenth Sunday in the Ordinary Time tells us how important it is to have our actions backed by our prayer. A life of actions means the service of God through what we do for the building of the Church which people can see. A life of prayer helps Christians to establish God’s Kingdom in the hearts of believers.
We pray hard in this Holy Mass for a good balance in our life of Christians between action and prayer; serving the Lord and listening to Him.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
