These words from the motto of our patron Saint John Henry Newman reflect our desire to be a community that:
The following message greets visitors to Coventry Cathedral. It seems to reflect the kind of church envisaged by Pope Francis and its one we strive to emulate:
We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throats as kids or got lost on the Ring Road and wound up here by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters and you!"
Your house is a place of welcome
a place of nourishment
A place of forgiveness, healing and peace.
Give us voices uplifted in praise
and hearts ready to welcome all you call.
Instil in us the desire to serve.
Unite in bonds of faith, hope and love
all members of our community.
Grant us grace upon grace
to build the temple of your spirit
creating its beauty from the holiness of our lives.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
