Text Box: Poems & Prayers of Hope


Today we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King and in today’s Gospel passage, we find Jesus telling Pilate ... “My kingdom is not of this world”. His Kingdom doesn’t have a big castle, crown jewels etc. because it’s a kingdom that dwells within the human heart. The Kingdom of God exists in every home where parents and children love each other. It exists in every town and country that cares for its weak and vulnerable. It exists in every parish that reaches out to the needy…. welcomes the ‘lost sheep’... celebrates the Sacraments and passes on the faith. The Kingdom of God happens whenever someone feeds a hungry person, or shows care to those in need…when we listen to someone who is hurting. It happens when we feel moved to tears by the plight of the refugees trying to cross the Mediterranean in unsafe boats - when we see thousands of people trapped on the border between Poland and Belarus and the list goes on!  As we come to the end of the Church’s Liturgical year, we look back on a very difficult year because of the Pandemic. Yet, many people have built a kingdom of exceptional kindness and care for one another throughout this time. Christ our King has been with us throughout our journey and will go with us on our journey through to next year, helping us to rejoice in His peace, to glory in His justice, and to live in His love.” Praise Him!

Mass is celebrated in our Churches:

St Marie’s: 12 noon Tuesday to Saturday, 8.30am and 10am on Sunday

Please note – All of us must wear a face-covering in Church


Though the Sunday obligation has not been reinstated, the Bishops are encouraging us to return to Sunday Mass....

Our capacity is now over a 100 in each Church and there is plenty of space at all our Mass


Keeping you all in prayer.
