FR ANDREW WRITES
A very Happy New Year to you all.  The turning of the year is a wonderful opportunity to take stock of our lives and to look to the future with renewed hope and enthusiasm.  Very many of you came to church on the 1st of January to dedicate the new year to Almighty God through the intercession of Mary the Mother of God.  That is a great way to begin!  This Sunday we celebrate the great feast of the Epiphany of the Lord.  Let us resolve as a parish community to put the Word of God made flesh at the centre so our lives may reveal his love to the world.

FR DAVID WRITES
Now we return to the Season of Ordinary Time, although the mysteries of the Nativity and Epiphany continue to shine until the Feast of the Lord's Presentation (Candlemas) on 2nd February. Next weekend sees a brand new feast in the Church's calendar: the Sunday of the Word of God. Last year, in his Apostolic Constitution 'Aperuit illis,'  Pope Francis established the new celebration. This is particularly appropriate for us in England given that we are celebrating our 'Year of the Word'.  Next weekend, everyone is invited to bring your Bibles from home to be blessed at Mass—please don’t forget!
