Prayer and Spirituality
As an ongoing daily practice there will be a 30 minute prayer time, which will begin with the Angelus. This may also include the Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Lectio Divina, as well as our course on the Gospel of Matthew, and other Scriptural mediations—including the Gospel of John.
There will be accompanying resources on the website and each of these services will be live streamed. They begin at 5.05pm - see the newsletter for more details.
Day of Recollection
It is good to spend a day when we can devote time to prayer, reflection, discussion and good company. Throughout the year we have days of recollection which strive to achieve just this. They are usually focused on the celebrating the Church’s year; at the beginning of Advent or Lent; or are arranged to support ministries such as Readers or Eucharistic Ministers. However, everyone is welcome to attend.
Liturgy and Worship
Greeters, Altar Servers, Sacristy Assistants, Musicians, Singers, Children’s Liturgy Leaders, Ministers of the Word, and Ministers of Holy Communion, all play a part in bringing a joyous, prayerful and communal spirit to our liturgical celebrations.
We are grateful to the generosity of those who have just joined the Children’s Liturgy Team, or who have become Altar Servers, but please feel free to enquire about any of these activities.
We would particularly welcome enquires from musicians and anyone who can play the keyboard or organ.
Prayer of the Church
We gather 15 minutes before Mass to pray Morning and Evening Prayer. In doing so we unite our prayers with the Church throughout the world.
Celebrating Special Wedding Anniversaries
As a parish community, we take great pride in those couples who celebrate significant wedding anniversaries. We are more than happy to add to their family celebration by inviting them to renew their marriage promises at one of our parish Masses.
