Partnership Property & Community Review

Our Partnership has been selected as one of 3 pilot areas in the diocese to carry out this review. The purpose is to look at the best use of our property in the light of our Mission. The first stage is for each parish to carry out a Community Audit looking at: activities & services in our community, unserved need, current use of our buildings & potential developments in partnership with others. Anyone interested in contributing to this

Contact :HB Maureen Clark, Pat McMullon, Pat .Devlin

HW John Nixon, Veronica Yarwood

Diocesan Refugee & Asylum Project Donations

The project has temporarily suspended, distribution of clothes except for ladies & gents coats & shoes, bedding & towels, crockery & pans. This is due to a large increase in new asylum seekers, putting pressure on space and volunteer capacity and increasing the need for food and cash distribution ( see newsletter at back of church)

Peace, in effect, is the fruit of a great political project grounded in the mutual responsibility and interdependence of human beings.  But it is also a challenge that demands to be taken up ever anew. It entails a conversion of heart and soul….      

·      peace with oneself, rejecting inflexibility, anger and impatience; in the words of Saint Francis de Sales, showing “a bit of sweetness towards oneself” in order to offer “a bit of sweetness to others”;

·      peace with others: being unafraid to encounter them and listen to what they have to say

·      peace with all creation, rediscovering the grandeur of God’s gift and our individual and shared responsibility as inhabitants of this world, citizens and builders of the future.

The politics of peace, conscious of and deeply concerned for every situation of human vulnerability, can always draw inspiration from the Magnificat

        

                                                          From the Vatican, 8 December 2018

Did you know?

Fond Farewell

 

Father Leo said his first Mass in our two parishes in September 1997.

 

Both his Golden & Diamond Jubilee were celebrated with us.

While we were privileged to share his celebrations of the Mass he also shared his wisdom and wit. His homilies were followed on the website by visitors abroad as well as parishioners away on holiday.

 

His generosity and energy supporting ecumenism in the area included leading the services  twice monthly at the Methodist chapel (in both parishes) and has set the standard for our continual resolve  in working with Churches Together.

 

Father Leo has helped us individually; emotionally and spiritually and continues to be met with great affection by all,  far beyond the bounds of our parishes.

He will be dearly missed around the area as he moves into his well-earned retirement.

Thank you, Fr Leo, for your faithful service to us all.

 


Happy new year to you all.  Fr.Leo Pyle

 

 

New Year Wishes

 

May peace break into your homes

and may thieves come to steal your debts.

May the pockets of your coats

become a magnet for £100 notes.

May love stick to your face like Vaseline

and may laughter assault your lips!

May happiness slap you across the face

and may your tears be that of joy and mercy

May the problems you had,

forget your home address

May 2019 – be the best year of your life!!!!

Thought for the week.

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. But Wisdom is not putting it in the fruit salad. Miles Kington.

 

 

 

 

Advent Wreath

 

While the Advent wreath is a feature in many Christian churches it actually originated among the Lutherans of Eastern Germany in the 16th century.

It was quickly adopted by both Protestants and Catholics throughout Germany, and it was brought to the United States by German immigrants, in the 19th century.

 

The Advent wreath has deeper origins as well, extending back to pre-Christian customs of burning candles during the darkest months of winter.

Meditation for Advent

A prison cell, in which one waits, hopes, does various unessential things, and is completely dependent on the fact that the door of freedom has to be opened from the outside, is not a bad picture of Advent Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

 

A Prayer for Young People

 

God our Father you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world.

Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world and that following you is better than chasing selfish goals.

Help them to take failure not as a measure of their worth but as a chance for a new start.

Give them strength to hold their faith in you and to keep their joy in your creation. Through  Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

Book of common prayer
