Luke’s gospel, which we are reading on Sundays in 2022, contains some of the most beautiful and moving parables of Jesus.

A Gidea Park Faith Talk on the Parables of Luke will be broadcast by live stream on Wednesday 21 September from 7 pm. Our distinguished speaker is Deacon Sean Loone, well-known in the Archdiocese of Birmingham for his work in education and in evangelisation. Sean will speak about the parables in the Gospel of Luke, which we shall be hearing at Sunday Mass as we continue through Year C of the lectionary.
