“Evangeli Gaudium” – The Joy of The Gospel. Pope Francis has written this 85 page document to all the faithful expressing a special attention to the needs of the poor. This has been a key theme of his Papacy and it is a timely reminder that Christ’s own birth, which we celebrate in a few weeks, was one of poverty. You can read and download the full document here.

Parish Pilgrimage to Poland 2014
Following our Parish ‘Year of Faith’ Pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi in June 2013 a number of people have been asking if we could facilitate a pilgrimage this year. In April 2014 Pope Francis will celebrate the Canonisations of Blessed Pope John XXlll and Blessed John- Paul ll. In light of this the parish proposes a pilgrimage to Krakow, Poland ‘Walking in the Footsteps of Pope John –Paul ll‘ from Monday 14th—Mon 21st July 2014. Copies of the proposed itinerary are available at the church doors. All bookings are made directly with MAP Travel but we ask that if you are booking you would also contact the parish office and let us know of your intention to do so . Please spread the word as this is a very beautiful trip which balances all aspects of a prayerful pilgrimage with ample time to rest and enjoy the beautiful city of Krackow and the surrounding area. Please see the proposed Itinerary at the doors of the church. Download the Proposed Itinerary Here and Booking Form Here
