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 10th December 2017

DURING ADVENT
 …Father may use the ‘I confess’ and the words are here…

 I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters,
 That I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words,
 In what I have done and what I have failed to do,
And, striking their breast, they say
through my fault, through my fault,through my most grievous fault;
Then they continue:
Therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints,
 And you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord or God.
 
Every Valley shall be exalted and every hill made low
And all God’s people shall see together the Glory of the Lord.

6.30PM MASS
You are all invited in to the hall after Mass for some Grenadian hospitality.
ADVENT PRAYER DAY
Following our Parish Prayer Day last week that introduced Journaling to us, we have the second extract for you to use as a stimulus for prayer. Journaling offers a space to reflect on a passage and respond to it in writing. Writing our response allows us to express our thoughts and feelings, it also lets us look back later and see how we have grown or changed. Remember the writing is for YOU! You are not writing for an audience!
Penitential Service on Tuesday 19th December
More details next week
