Held last week facilitated by The Forward Together in Hope Team. Launched in Nov. ’14 to build a flourishing Catholic community for the future and tackle the declining priest numbers with fewer Sunday Masses. The Lancastrian Suite for this area was full to capacity as Fr. Jim O’Keefe outlined the unlimited potential of the decision to have 18 partnerships in One Diocese. The ground work now continues for our parishes with monthly meetings and committee meetings – see below.

Racial Justice Sunday Prayer

Father, you created each one of us in your own image.

Yet yours is a world made glorious by its rich diversity.

This we sometimes misunderstand, sometimes fear.

Give us the patience to build on what unites us,

to celebrate our differences and to learn from them.

Grant us the wisdom to recognise your Church,

beyond the walls of a building, reaching out

 across all communities, countries and cultures.

Give us the courage to offer refuge to those in need,

to challenge prejudice and seek justice for all.

Help us see that you created us in your image.

Neighbour or stranger, always our brother or sister.
