THIS WEEK (16th September 2018):
THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK:
1. “Who do people say I am?” Jesus asks the disciples in today’s Gospel. Peter says “You are the Christ”. Who is Jesus for you? What do you believe about Jesus? Where is ‘The Christ’ in your life?
2. “The Lord has opened my ear” Isaiah writes (1st reading). Do you allow your ear to ‘be opened’ by God? Do you listen to God? How? When? Where?
3. How do you ‘judge’ your faith (2nd reading)? Good works/faith: how are they connected in your 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 young people in our schools and colleges. We pray that they may be encouraged to follow the way of peace and justice, that they may have the strength and confidence to speak up for what is right and true and that they as they grow in faith and love they are able to contribute to the building up of a fair and just community for all. We pray that every young person will be treated justly, will be safe and will be able to access their education according to their own needs.
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.
