ALL ARE WELCOME

We are part of the Lewisham Deanery and a parish of the Archidiocese of Southwark.
Please take a look inside Our Church.
We hope you'll find a friendly and very active Catholic Community,
one that you'll be happy to belong to and to participate in.
But most of all, we hope you'll be able to encounter God's presence.
This is the Source and Summit of all that we are and all that we do. Fr Doug Bull

Week starting on the 18th February 2018:1st Sunday of Lent

This week homily is available here
 
GOSPEL REFLECTION FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT
In todays Gospel, Jesus urges his listeners to do two things: to believe in the Good News and to repent. The steward is called to repent: to acquire an openness to begin anew, to change existing attitudes and habits, and to act with faith in the Gospel. In this season of Lent, now is the time to ask ourselves whether or not we truly believe in the Gospel; and if we do, to what extent are we willing to change our prevailing habits and be more faithful to the Gospel?
 
 
Each week of Lent there will be a cartoon and a short text based on the Gospel reading for that week.
 
What is God saying to you?
 
What are your priorities going to be?

 
RITE OF ELECTION - ST GEORGE’S CATHEDRAL.
 
Our RCIA group were welcomed by Archbishop  Peter on Saturday as they took the next step in their Journey in Faith. He called them to the Easter Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.

 
LENT IS HERE!
 
Our Lenten Cross is on the Sanctuary and this year as part of our Spirituality of Stewardship we are considering TIME. Your are asked to complete a card to hang on the cross and promise to “spend some quality time with someone each week during Lent”
