The Census is going very well.

A great “thank you” to you all who have given us your Details. Thank you too to those who enabled the Operation.

You are now on our Parish Register. This is very important for us. And it is vital for you too to be on our Books – that we know you exist and who you are! It is so important for your Children – for the Sacraments (First Holy Communion and Confirmation). Furthermore, it can be a tremendous help for our Catholic Schools and their Admission requirements.

While many people in St Peter’s are well established and here for years, many do come and go within a few years. The Census helps to keep our Parish Register up to date.

If you have not yet filled in a Form please pick one up. Fill it out. And let us have it.

Many, many thanks INDEED.

Since Thursday – until next Thursday – we pray for all our brothers and sisters in Christ with whom we share Baptism in common.

During the week of Prayer for Christian Unity we ask God to bless us all who believe in Him and we also plead that He will enable us all to spread the great news of His Kingdom.

Please do sacrifice some of your valuable time to attend a Service in your Local Village Church during this very special week each year (18th to 25th January).

Thank you all who are helping: me to settle into life at St Peter’s. Thank you especially for the welcome you gave me at the weekend. It was wonderful to be able to meet you, if only in passing.

Now that you no longer have a Resident Priest it is obvious that I will need much help so that essential routine tasks and jobs are carried out. I thank especially Alban Macdonald who has filled in so many gaps in my first week.

Hopefully more of you will be able to give God some of your time in helping the Mission of our Parish

The Holy Spirit

Permalink
"Although the Spirit never changes, the effects of his action, but the will of God and in the name of Christ, are both many and marvellous. The Spirit makes one person a teacher of divine truth, inspires another to prophesy, gives another the power of casting out devils, enables another to interpret Holy Scripture. The Spirit strengthens one person's self-control, shows another how to help the poor, teaches another to fast and lead a life of asceticism, makes another oblivious to the needs of the body, trains another for martyrdom. His action is different in different people, but the Spirit is always the same."

Come let us adore Him: I hope you had a lovely Christmas and that the loveliness of your Christmas continues right through 2018.

Let us very much pray for each other at this time and throughout 2018.

For the life in our Parish at this most Holy time I thank:

• All who helped at the Liturgies (Deacon John, the Musicians, Special Ministers, Readers, the Servers), the Linen, the Tree, the Crib, the Flowers.

• Last - and most importantly - our Children - Christmas is all about YOU.

Thank you all who are responsible for contributing to the Christmas Season that the Parish is having. May God reward you, throughout the New Year ahead, for the time you give to Him and to His Church.

Weekday Masses

Please God I will offer Mass here on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On the other weekdays (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) I hope to say Mass at Shefford.
