THIS WEEK (27th May 2018):
THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK
- ‘The Lord is God indeed’ (1st reading). ‘Where’ do you experience the majesty of God? Creation, Mass, prayers, family……….?
- ‘Everyone moved by the Spirit’ is a child of God! Have you been ‘moved’ by God’s Spirit? When? What was the effect?
- ‘Make disciples of all the nations’ Jesus commands. How do you proclaim God’s Word? How do you witness to your faith? Have you ‘enabled’ disciples to be formed?
Night Fever takes place on Friday (1st June) at 8pm (until 10.30pm) in St Edmund’s Church. Come along and join the Team (briefing in St Edmund Hall at 7.45pm). Team members ‘invite’ passers-by to ‘pop in’ and light a candle, write a prayer intention……….. A great way to ‘reach out’ beyond the faith community. You are also invited just to pop in and pray in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament on the altar. See you Friday……………………………..
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—MAY: the Work Place 27 May Trinity Sunday: Jesus in the Gospel states that all authority in heaven and earth has been given to him. What is your attitude to those who have authority over you? Is their authority a source of resentment for you or do you see it as a source of strength, enabling you to carry out your work? Why does Christianity emphasise the link between obedience and freedom? In what ways are they interdependent?

A course to help point in the right direction and to learn more about the Catholic Faith and the Catholic Church. Fortnighly sessions (6th, 20th June & 4th July) based on the 'Syamore Course' at St Edmund's Church Hall, Rockstone Place at 7.30pm (Wednesdays).
