THIS WEEK (18th November 2018)
Thoughts for the week:
1. When everything passes away ‘My words will not pass away’ Jesus says (Gospel). Which ‘words’ of Christ, or in the Bible in general, do you ‘hang’ unto? Why? How do they help you?
2. ‘The learned will shine….brightly’ Daniel writes (1st reading). Who do you look to in terms of faith, or wisdom, or advice? Does anyone look towards you? Who? Why?
3. Jesus won redemption for us. What part do we have in it? Does God ask you for sacrifices? How can your sacrifices help anything? 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— NOVEMBER: World Peace: "If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner." - Nelson Mandela
Confirmation ‘Commitment’: Our Confirmation candidates will make a ‘commitment’ of involvement and participation in the Preparation Process; and we will pray for them.

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.
