Dear Parishioners

God is ONE: God is THREE

Three Persons in One God - a mystery which cannot be solved and of which we stand in wonder.

The Father loves the Son and the Son loves the Father and the fruit of their love is the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Trinity works in our lives. At the Last Supper, Jesus tells his apostles: 'if a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make our home with him.' All three Persons are active in our creation, in our redemption and in our ongoing development as followers of Jesus.

GOD IS LOVE. The love of the Holy Trinity is what inspires and empowers all that we are and do. The indwelling of God in our lives enables us each to be the person whom God wishes us to be and to do what he wishes us to do.

Let us give thanks to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit - Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier, and never forget that we are created in the image and likeness of God - for proactive and total love. Total surrender to the Will of God is the way to our true fulfilment and holiness, and God's protection will be with us at all times.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. AMEN

On Sunday 27 May there is no Mass at 4.30pm. Instead we are all invited to join the new parish of St. Catherine comprising the churches of St Gregory's, Lydiate and Our Lady's, Lydiate. The Mass will be in the grounds of St. Catherine's Abbey (opposite Our Lady's) at 3pm. There is plenty of parking nearby and there will be a party afterwards in the grounds of Our Lady's.

A Pilgrimage with a difference.

I have received information about a holiday/pilgrimage to St John's Holy Island of Patmos this September. The Catholic Faith Exploration team is organising the week-long pilgrimage. Daily Mass will be celebrated and there will be some talks on St John and Patmos. There will be time for private reflection and prayer and relaxing at local beaches, and sight-seeing around the island. The cost for half board is around 1100. If you are interested in having further details, please sign the lists at the back of both churches.

Live Simply - Grow a Garden

The Scouts have begun to turn a plot of derelict land at the side of the Parish Centre into a garden. The plot is all enclosed -a walled garden that can be seen from the windows of the lounge - and full of sun. Click here for further information.
