THIS WEEK (22nd April 2018): 

THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK

1. “Filled with the Holy Spirit” Peter preaches to the rulers (1st reading).  When have you felt ‘filled with the Holy Spirit’?  Why?  When?  What was your response?


2. We are called “God’s children”, and so we are (2nd reading).  How do you live this out?  How does the ‘knowledge’ of being a child of God affect your way of life, your outlook and your attitude?


3. “I know my own, and my own know me” (Gospel).  How do you let Jesus ‘know’ who you are?  What do you reveal to him?

 ‘A time of prayer’ …………after or before Sunday Mass once a month. The next schedule ones:
• WATCH THIS SPACE!

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—APRIL: This month as a parish we are reflecting upon peace with society as a whole. We make peace before we receive communion, we share the sign of peace with one another, but do we truly share that peace with those we meet on a daily basis? Do we smile and acknowledge with warmth the shopkeeper, the road sweeper, the homeless? Do we recognise the dignity of every human being? We are called to be the visible face of the invisible Christ to those we meet. ‘Let there be peace in our world and let it begin with me!’

Pope Francis’ Intention for April: Universal: For those who have responsibility in Economic Matters. That economists may have the courage to reject any economy of exclusion and know how to open new paths.

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.
