As spring is a time of renewal and growth, we hope that this summer’s anticipated sunshine will shed light and focus on the season of Advent and Christmas in a way that is energising and inspiring for all of us.
Connect@home is a diocesan resource of daily reading, resources and Mass online to assist parishioners with worship at home. One element of Connect@home is a daily email which invites individuals to enter into the beauty and power of the Scriptures. It offers a chance to be nourished and formed by the Word of God, especially at a time when gathering as a community for Mass has not been as accessible or as regular as in previous years. Connect@home has been one way our congregation has kept up a strong connection.
The Church teaches that Christ is truly present in the Eucharist, in a community of two or more gathered in his name and when the Scriptures are read or proclaimed.
Each morning, you will receive an email with a link to the daily readings set by the Church and a short reflection and prayer. You could do this sacred reading on your own, or with members of your household.
This is a chance for us as a local church to connect with one another and with Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, who is with us in all we are going through.
