St Cuthbert Vision!
Films for Young and Older Parishioners
Thank you very much to everyone who helped in anyway over the Easter Triduum. There were so many people helping behind the scenes in so many ways and that made a big difference. This fills me with a great deal of hope for the time ahead as we move forward. As things change and open up more, I will be given notice by the diocese and will keep you all up to speed and we can implement any changes the best we can, safely and as soon as we can. Thank you for all your support to me personally in so many different ways, especially your prayers, God bless, Fr Chris
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,
