Sunday Message Christ the King

Hymns for Christ the King 2020


Streets of Light

This Christmas we want to light up our streets with a message of hope.

We are inviting local people to decorate one or more of the windows in their home, business or school and then leave the lights on and curtains open from 4pm till 9pm each day from Sunday 13th – Sunday 20th December.

The design can be anything you like, you just have to include one or more of the key words: Light, Hope, Love.

Cut paper and shapes and light up your window!

Please use the form below to let us know that you are taking part. We will then create a virtual map that we will promote on our Facebook page and website so that we can explore the Streets of Light in Bolton.

(Home addresses will be street name only for data protection).

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.
