THIS WEEK (23rd September 2018):
THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK:
1. The disciples were arguing ‘Which of them was the greatest?’, and missed the point of ‘service’ (Gospel). When have you been more concerned about your ‘position’ rather than what you can offer others?
2. When do you try to ‘destroy’ the reputation of others because they ‘oppose your way of life’? (1st reading). Why?
3. What ‘desires’ are ‘fighting within yourself’ (2nd reading) and affect your relationship with others or your outlook on life? Vincent Harvey
Parish Theme: ‘Peace’. November 2018 will see the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. As the year progresses, without doubt society, civic and religious, will be focusing on world peace, maybe more needed now than ever in our world history! PARISH THEME—AUGUST: ‘Education for Peace' We pray for all those who are denied access to education. We pray for those who are unable to attend school because of war, disaster or lack of resources. We pray for those who are denied education by oppressive regimes. We pray for all those who are working to bring education to children and young people in difficult circumstances, in refugee camps, in war torn countries and places suffering extreme poverty.
Pope Francis’ Intention for September: Universal: Young People in Africa. That young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.
St. Joseph's and St. Edmund's ...
is a warm, welcoming and diverse Catholic community at the heart of Southampton. People from across the globe come regularly to worship here at one of the several Sunday or weekday Masses. Catholics and people of any Christian community or faith (or none) are able to use St Edmund's Church as a place of quiet and reflection throughout the day.
This website has been prepared for you, the parishioner, for our visitors and for those in the local community who are interested in the parish. This website provides a summary of the many activities, groups and organisations that function in this vibrant parish. We welcome contributions and anyone can submit an article.
To all new arrivals, we extend a very warm welcome. We would be grateful if you would complete a census form and return it to the parish office so that our records may be kept up to date. Be assured, that in doing so you are not committing yourselves to anything.
