News and Current Issues
52nd International Eucharistic Congress, Budapest, 5th -12th September 2021
Pope Francis will participate in the Closing Mass of the congress. At the opening, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, president of the Council of European Bishops' Conferences told us “Do not be afraid: God is not dead, the Eucharist overcomes every loneliness, every distance, every indifference." He particularly directed comments to the young in Catholic schools, saying that faith and reason coexist and that "God is not a competitor of your freedom, and faith is not a series of prohibitions, but rather a great 'yes' to joy, even when it is demanding because love is a serious thing." “Everything grows old quickly, only God is always young, and the Church is the true youth of the world because she preserves the sacrament of the Body of Christ. May the Eucharist be the center of your days. Of every day!” Cardinal Bagnasco also addressed priests, saying that the Church's gratitude goes to them because they are "heralds of God's love, prophets of the Spirit in a marketplace of material values, heirs of a living Tradition and heralds of the future in a lost world.” You can read more about the Congress on Home | Eucharistic Congress - IEC2020
Season of Creation 1st Sept - 4th Oct 2021
In a recent joint statement from the Council of Bishops' Conferences of Europe and the Conference of European Churches, Catholics are called to “observe and celebrate the Season of Creation from 1 September to 4 October”. To this end, CAFOD’s family fast day this year, taking place on October 1st, aims to raise money to help those affected by climate change. As the climate warms, the changes disproportionately affect those less able to deal with the consequences, such as drought, flooding, and forest fires. CAFOD aims to help with the recovery from these disasters and to work towards preventing them in the future by asking for action from politicians.
The statement also encourages us to pray for progress through the UN Summit on Biodiversity and COP 26, two major upcoming summits to tackle climate change. Both the Pope and the Queen will be attending COP 26, which goes to show the importance of this event. CAFOD is running a petition, asking for the Prime Minister to show leadership in tackling the climate crisis, available at cafod.org.uk/reclaim. This would be a great way to help encourage those in power to take this issue seriously at these summits. As Catholics, we have a duty to protect God’s creation, and our brothers and sisters who will suffer as it suffers. Samuel Carter.
Parish Petition: In response to the Season of Creation and the bishops’ efforts to encourage personal responsibility for stewardship of our environment, we have decided in our little parish community to make our voice heard. A petition will be available to sign at the back of church after every Mass. It will urge the Prime Minister to push for world leaders to show ambition to keep temperatures below the 1.5 degree threshold, and that wealthy nations step up and make sure that communities hardest hit by the climate emergency are listened to at COP26. We will then send this to our local MP, Sarah Dines. Hopefully this will be one of many small voices joining together to make a big noise!
Preparation for 1st Holy Communion and Confirmation
Preparation programmes are due to commence shortly and we invite parents to contact the presbytery to register their children.
