John Huntriss, Talk on Scripture

The Diary of God - 14th December 2023

We welcome John Huntriss as guest speaker. John is a well known and respected speaker on Scripture, who has recently published "The Diary of God". This book guides us through the entire bible over the three year cycle of the Liturgy of daily Mass, and is recommended by our Bishop who wrote the forward. John will be selling copies after the talk (£5:00, cash only).

This event forms part of our RCIA Journey in Faith program, and like all of these events is open to all of the Parish: all are very welcome to come!

We have a new Deacon

By the grace of God, John Andrews was ordained into the Permanent Diaconate on 23rd September at Clifton Cathedral. A coach of Parishioners went and others travelling by rail and road to the celebration of ordination of 5 Deacons at 11:00.

After Sunday morning masses, Parishioners joined in a celebration buffet.

Please pray for all five candidates for ordination as they enter their ministry following 5 years of formation: John Andrews, Andrew Bent, Charles Hickman, Bartek Kowalewski and Joe Almeida.

John thanks all for their prayers and support on his journey.

Stations of Creation

As part of this years Season of Creation – a Catholic and Ecumenical season in which we consider our environment – we repeated the stations of creation which took place two years ago.

The walk was interspersed with prayers about creation. and was inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’
