LECTIO DIVINA – All are invited to our beginners session which will be held in the hall on Thursday, 14th July after 9.30am mass. (We aim to finish by 11am). A brief introduction will be given before we start. However, please do look at the presentations which will give you some information about this practice.

Lectio Divina is the ancient monastic art of praying with scripture. It is an art that helps us to listen to God by reading scripture prayerfully in the midst of our busy and often noisy lives. It is a technique of prayer and guide to living. Lectio Divina is a way of finding God in our heart. Come along to find out more and to try it out.


The 10th World Meeting of Families has taken place in Rome this month, with a programme of talks and liturgies which were live-streamed via Vatican media channels. Our Diocese is marking the close of the Year of the Family at the annual Mass for Marriage and Family Life in July, which Bishop Alan will offer for the intentions of all families in the Diocese. If would like a particular intention to be placed before the altar at this Mass, please complete the prayer request form which can be found on the new Marriage and Family Life pages of the Diocesan website, where you will also find more information about the World Meeting of Families:
