We believe that the door to salvation is always open to everyone and so are the doors to our church.

18TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
“Jesus feeds the crowd with five loaves and two fish” (Matthew 14:13-21)
Hearing the news of the death of John the Baptist in today’s Gospel, Jesus seeks to withdraw, but the crowds follow him. Jesus reaches out to them in compassion and heals the sick. At the end of a long day, the disciples encourage Jesus to send the crowds away so that they might find provisions for themselves. Jesus again responds to the crowd with compassion. He tells his disciples to provide food for the crowd. The disciples reply with a report of the shortage of their own provisions; five loaves and two fish. The result is the familiar miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fish. Matthew's Gospel tells us that 5,000 men were fed, and this number does not even include the women and children. Jesus' blessing brought abundance from the meager provisions of the disciples by offering us a sign of the Kingdom of Heaven that he has been teaching about in the parables. A feast results from the smallest of portions… remember the mustard seed and the yeast. In this miracle we witness an example for Christian life and ministry. Even the smallest of offerings can produce abundant results when placed in the service of the Kingdom of Heaven.
