St Cuthbert Vision!
Films for Young and Older Parishioners
Almighty God, you inspired Your servant St. Luke the Evangelist and Physician to set forth in the gospel the love and the healing power of your Son. In faithfully detailing the humanity of Jesus, he also showed the divinity of Jesus and His genuine compassion for all human beings.
May St. Luke intercede for us that we may deepen our understanding of the gospel and grow in compassion of Jesus. May his intercession enable our new parish to follow Your way and plan for us.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
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.
The live streaming of Mass means that we will be gathered as the parish family looking forward in hope for when we can all 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,
