Saints Simon and Jude

O God, Who, through Thy blessed Apostles Simon and Jude, hast brought us to the knowledge of Thy name, grant that we may celebrate their everlasting glory by advancing in good works, and that we may advance in good works by celebrating their glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee,
in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God,
world without end. Amen.

World Mission Sunday

WORLD MISSION SUNDAY 17th/18th October  2020

This is the one Sunday in the year, when the entire global Church family comes together, to pray for and support mission. Missionaries work alongside communities throughout the world, that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief.

The funds raised for MISSIO, the Pope’s charity for world mission, build much-needed infrastructure, from chapels and schools to orphanages, clinics and dispensaries.

If you would like to make a donation, please put it in an envelope, clearly marked WORLD MISSION SUNDAY and place it in the Offertory Basket at the back of church, at Mass next Sunday, or whenever you can.

Other ways to donate;

You can send a cheque, payable to Missio and post it to World Mission Sunday, 23, Eccleston Square, London SW1V 1NU

You can give online: Visit and select “World Mission Sunday”

You can give via text: Text MISSIO 5 to donate £5 or MISSIO 10 to donate £10 to70085

You can call 020 7821 9755 during office hours to donate via credit or debit card.

This is our chance to show love and solidarity to our global Church family. Through our prayers and donations for Missio, we can support missionaries in their work of helping our brothers and sisters in Christ, who are living in situations of poverty, violence or oppression and bringing the Good News of God’s love to them.

My Mission Prayer

Here I am Lord, send me, to share your love with all people. May I be empowered and carried by you, to be courageous and enthusiastic in bearing faithful witness to the merciful Father, to the love of his Son Jesus Christ and to the divine life in the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen

Father Chris Gorton

Welcome to our parish website and to the family of the Parish of St Cuthbert, Bolton.

Jesus promised that where two or three are gathered in his name he is present amongst them.

At a time when we cannot gather publicly it is more important than ever to remember that we can and must gather in prayer.

The live streaming of Mass means that we will be gathered as the parish family looking forward in hope for when we can physically gather again.

This time calls for us to  make a Spiritual Communion giving the time that we would normally give for mass by watching the mass online if possible and make it our fervent prayer again and again:

‘Jesus I want to receive you into my life.’

This time calls us to action. We can all exercise a ministry of prayer for each other, for all those in need and our world. This is a very special opportunity for our parish to be a powerhouse of prayer.

Pray, pray, pray!

The churches will be open at different times during the week . And for those who are able to be out and about it is a very important time to look at every way possible to help other people.

Please check our Facebook page for updated information.

Above all we must build our lives on the solid rock of Christ. It is timely to reflect on the parable that Jesus told of the two house builders (Matthew Chapter 7). One built on sand, the other on rock. In both cases the storm came but the house built on rock stood.

We are in the middle of a storm now, let us make sure that our lives are built on the solid rock of faith in Christ and remember the words of St Teresa of Avila:

‘Let nothing disturb you, let nothing worry you, the one who has God lacks nothing.

Let nothing disturb you, let nothing worry you, God alone is enough.’


God bless you,

Fr Chris.
