Fr Chris writes.......
Last week, in the company of Martha and Mary, we looked at the creative tension between our heartfelt action, ‘our doing’; and our heartfelt presence to listen, reflect, learn and love, ‘our being’. Our prayers are not to change God’s mind or tell Him what to do. Our prayer is to lead us into the presence of our Hallowed God, as we seek to build his Kingdom by our lives, by our reception of those things we really need (our daily bread), in humility and lowliness. What a wonderful gift the ‘Our Father’ prayer is as we are led beyond our human and physical needs, to a true awareness of our need for God.
is celebrated in all three Churches. Together the Parish is
committed to celebrating the Catholic faith as part of the Roman
Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton.
