NOTICES AND EVENTS

Christ the King

Scripture Refelection

Almighty God,

You have

conferred upon Christ Jesus

Sovereignty

over all ages and every nation.

Direct us, in the love of Christ,

to care for our brothers and sisters, that we may be

instruments of his kingdom.

Who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

 

After we have obeyed the Lord, and in his Spirit nurtured on earth the values of human dignity, brotherhood and freedom, and indeed all the good fruits of our nature and enterprise, we will find them again, but freed of stain, burnished and transfigured, when Christ hands over to the father: ‘a kingdom eternal and universal, a kingdom of truth and life, of holiness and grace, of justice, love, and peace.’ II Vatican Council

 

Christ the King of Justice

WE BELONG TO YOU

Christ the King of Mercy

WE BELONG TO YOU

Christ the King of Peace.

WE BELONG TO YOU

ADVENT WREATH PRAYERS FOR USE AT HOME

 

Each week as a new candle is lit we pray the prayer that accompanies each candle as we light it. So for week one we pray just one line. For week two; two lines etc.


' Week One: Lord, by your presence, light up the past, that we might learn from it with wisdom and thankfulness.      Maranatha, come Lord Jesus!

' Week Two: Lord, by your presence, light up the present, that we might live in it in peace and love. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus!

' Week Three: Lord, by your presence, light up the future, that we might prepare for it in hope and trust. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus!

' Week Four: Lord, by your presence, help us watch and pray, that we may welcome Jesus, who is Lord of all time and present in our every moment. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus!

 

The gifts we donate with our giving tree to the families and individuals cared for through the Saint Joseph Family Centre need to be prepared for distribution at the beginning of December. Any parishioners able to help with the packing or delivering hampers during December, please contact the Centre on 01925 635448.
