Pray for those recently baptised

Dear parishioners and friends of our 3 Churches,

Last week we celebrated the Feast of our Lord’s Baptism – a good opportunity to share with you those who have been baptised since November in these restricted times.
So please pray for: Nolan Anthony Lewis, Elsie Alys Jones, Lauren Cerys Austin-Johnston, Lewis Owain Austin-Johnston, and, this coming week, Maisie Grace Zendaya Nkhata.

Remember them and their god-parents.

Abiding in Christ

Dear parishioners and friends of our 3 Churches,

Our Ecumenism Commission writes: “The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity starts this Monday, January 18th. The theme for 2021 is ‘Abiding in Christ’, based on John 15: 1-17. It expresses and encourages the vocation to prayer, reconciliation and unity in the Church and the human family. Although many of us are unable to meet with our fellow Christians this year, the Commission for Christian Unity encourages us to make use of the prayerful material available as a download. Find it at https://ctbi.org.uk/week-of-prayer-for-christian-unity-2021/ and sustain our prayer for the Unity for which Christ prayed. Contact email: unity@rcadc.org

Spoken from heaven…

‘You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you’.

These are the words that are heard ‘spoken from heaven’ in the Gospel for today, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.

In these difficult times, when we may have reason to be down-hearted, let’s all remember that through our own Baptism, these words should also echo in our own hearts and lives.

Find a quiet moment to hear the voice of the Father speaking to you, too ‘You are my child, the Beloved; my favour rests on you’.

Fr Matthew
