Welcome!

We are called, through our Baptism, to live in and by the Presence of Christ in Word and Sacrament. Through His call we live, gratefully, the life God has given us and proclaim the Good News through our word and deed.

MASS THIS WEEK

 

Weekday Mass this week will be celebrated in the Parish Hall at 10:00am, Tuesday-Saturday. There will be no Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament this week. This will allow the internal repair work on the church to be done more quickly. A considerable area of plaster is being replaced on the ceiling. The plaster will have to be left to dry before being painted.

SUNDAY'S LITURGY: A rare example of Jesus’ teaching where we hear his actual words. They are parables about the kingdom of God, about the growth of large plants from tiny seeds. The first focuses on seed germination. No-one sees a seed growing until the shoot, and then the full plant emerges. The second reflects on the smallness of the mustard seed plant and the large shrub that it produces. Puzzling? Parables provoke questions; they don’t provide answers. 

Day for Life

Today the Catholic Church in Great Britain and Ireland marks our annual Day for Life, established by Pope Saint John Paul II to recognise the value of human life at every stage and condition, and to draw attention to the seriousness of abortion and euthanasia and other aspects of human life deserving our consideration.

 

In recent years, our Day for Life collection has helped fund our traditional pro-life organisations as well as supporting survivors of sexual abuse and those with addictions and caring for refugees and asylum seekers.

 

This year’s theme, The Lord is My Shepherd, focuses on compassion and hope at the end of life, against current efforts to legalise assisted euthanasia. To read the DfL Message and access resources, visit

We remind you NOT to attend Mass or Liturgies if you are carrying an infection or have the symptoms of Covid.
We encourage you to continue to be aware of those around about you, especially those who may be more vulnerable.

CRY CHAPEL: Please do not sit in the cry chapel for Mass as it is a restricted space. If a baby is crying at Mass, you might take the baby to the cry chapel to settle down, but otherwise, please sit in the main church.
