Homilies

Homilies

Sacrosanctum concilium teaches: "By means of the homily the mysteries of the faith and the guiding principles of the Christian life are expounded from the sacred text during the course of the liturgical year. The homily, therefore, is to be highly esteemed as part of the liturgy itself" (no. 52).

Our intention was to post these for every Mass, but this is not possible since our move to Farm St parish. We now post the text of homilies delivered during particular, or special, Masses.


These are in .pdf format.  They are sorted by date preached and are available for download by clicking on the date of the homily.
