Welcome:



  • THE PARISH PRIEST WRITES:

    Dear parishioners and dear friends

    Today is Home Mission Sunday. The day is designated by the Catholic Bishops of England & Wales to help us focus on growing in faith and ‘passing it on’. So I quote verbation from some ‘Homily Notes’:

    We need to reflect on our family life. We would all agree with Pope Francis that “the family is experiencing a profound cultural crisis” (EG66). Every Christian family should try to follow two models: the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, and the Holy Trinity. The Holy Family had its difficulties - persecution by King Herod, losing Jesus aged 12 etc.- but despite them Mary, Joseph and Jesus loved one another and each tried to follow God’s will for them. The Holy Trinity is three persons, bound together in love, and this same unity in love should be displayed at the heart of the Christian family.

    So, parents: how do you pass on the faith to your children, and are you transmitting God’s values to them? Children: what do you do to help, not obstruct, family life? What can you do to make the world a better place? Everyone: how can we overcome our difficulties, and show love and joy? As members of a family we evangelise best by our witness in our daily lives: coming to Mass every Sunday as a family, praying together as a family, working together as a family, like the workers in the parable, for the kingdom of God.

    God Bless you.
