Fr Chris writes.....

Please take away a Home Mission Sunday Prayer Card - Evangelisation ‘in the heart of the family’

...Many children and young people (even though baptised) will never see their parents receive the sacraments. Every person at Mass in our parish this weekend will know of someone (or probably many) who are currently distant from the family of the faith – the parish community. For many of us our list will start with some members of our own family. Hopefully, we do not condemn, but pray and love.
...We all share in the task of evangelisation and, whilst priests and religious have their part to play, the task is one that we all share in. Our call at Baptism is to become disciples of Jesus spreading the good news in our setting, our culture and our generation.
- It is not the waving of a magic wand and all will be well.
- It is a journey that can be tough; but also rewarding, if we work at it, united with the community of faith.

Every year we have a Sunday for Home Missions which is organised by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, under the leadership of Bishop Kieran who is the chair for the Bishops’ Conference Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis. This year’s Home Mission Sunday occurs this weekend. Please give generously to our second collection today, which will help the Church to provide resources and materials to encourage those who are on the fringes of the faith and those outside the Church altogether.
