Fr Chris writes.......
Jesus sent his disciples as bearers of peace, healing and reconciliation, as they brought to those they encountered the good news of salvation. We need to receive Christ's gifts again and again through the sacraments; so that we in turn can bring these same gifts to others.
We are reminded of this at the end of Mass, for we
are not simply dismissed. We are sent out and
commissioned in the Lord's name, and with the Lord's
power, to build up His kingdom in the world:
"Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord"
"Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life"
"Go forth, the Mass is ended"
Cardinal Vincent Nichols writes......
Cardinal Vincent has given the following statement
after the announcement of the EU referendum result
to leave the European Union:
'A great tradition of the United Kingdom is to respect the will of the people, expressed at the ballot box. Today we set out on a new course that will be demanding on all.
'Our prayer is that all will work in this task with respect and civility, despite deep differences of opinion. We pray that in this process the most vulnerable will be supported and protected, especially those who are easy targets for unscrupulous employers and human traffickers.
'We pray that our nations will build on our finest traditions of generosity, of welcome for the stranger and shelter for the needy.
is celebrated in all three Churches. Together the Parish is
