This Week's Parish News
After School Sacramental Programme
Our Mission is to continue growing as a community where people can meet Jesus Christ and grow in his life and mission in the Catholic Faith.
The spirituality our parish mission is expressed best in the parish prayer of St Therese of Avila.
Christ has no body on earth but yours;
no hands but yours;
no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which he is to look out-
Christ's compassion to the world.
Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good.
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless others now.
To be a Parish that is open and transparent, nurturing, united and inclusive.
To be a community that is welcoming, embracing and caring for families, youth and valuing cultural diversity.
To be a Parish that brings those who do not know Christ into relationship with him.

Pope Francis’ Special Synod: Communion, Participation, and Mission 2021-2023
Pope Francis has called the whole Church to prepare to meet on synodality - ‘Journeying Together’ – an important theme for the life and mission of the Church.
The site (https://www.synod.va/en.html) will accompany the two-year journey (2021-2023) of reflection and sharing of the whole Church. The site has a Handbook for the process of Listening and Discernment in Local Churches.
https://www.synod.va/content/dam/synod/document/common/vademecum/Vademecum-EN-A4.pdf This Handbook (also referred to as a Vademecum) hopes to provide helpful tools for all, proposing good and fruitful practices that can be adapted along the way as we journey together. It also includes: online liturgical, biblical, and prayer resources, as well as more detailed methodological suggestions and tools, examples from recent synodal exercises, and a Glossary of Terms for the Synodal Process.
It is especially important that this listening process happen in a spiritual setting that supports openness in sharing as well as hearing. People are encouraged to set their experience of the Synodal Process in meditation on Scripture, the liturgy, and prayer. In this way, our journey of listening to one another can be an authentic experience of discerning the voice of the Holy Spirit. Authentic discernment happens where there is time for deep reflection and a spirit of mutual trust, common faith, and a shared purpose.
The global context in which this Synod is taking place includes a pandemic, local and international conflicts, growing impact of climate change, migration, and various forms of injustice, racism, violence, persecution and inequality. In the Church, the context is also marked by the suffering experienced by minors and vulnerable people. … The context of the COVID-19 pandemic could affect the Synodal Process, but also offers an opportunity to promote the revitalization of the Church.
Synodality could be the path by which the Church can be renewed by the action of the Holy Spirit, listening together to what God has to say to his people. This journey together can unite us more deeply with one another as the People of God, and also send us out to pursue our mission to embrace the entire family of humanity, together with other Christian denominations and other faith traditions.
