The Epiphany of the Lord

The three Wise Men follow the star to Bethlehem to find the new-born King.  There they worship Jesus and present their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh: gold for a king, frankincense for God, myrrh for his burial. Jesus was both God and Man.  This act of the three wise men represents the manifestation of Jesus to the world.  This feast of the Epiphany is the time for us to worship the new-born King, and to bring him our own gifts because Jesus has given his whole self to us.

 

Empowering Vulnerable Children in  Uganda

This Charity will be making an appeal at Masses today.

 

White Flower Appeal

The Society for the Protection of Unborn children (SPUC) will be holding its annual appeal next weekend.

SPUC is currently campaigning to stop the decriminalisation of abortion, which means taking abortion outside the law.  This is the most dangerous threat to unborn children and their mothers in decades.

Please be generous as you can help to us defeat the latest attack on unborn babies and their mothers, and to stop abortion getting even worse in this country by decriminalisation.

 

Thank you

Fr Colin would like to thank everybody for their most generous gifts and offerings that he received at Christmas as well as all the cards.  I wish you every blessing for the New Year.
