The Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham – 24th September

O Mary, recall the solemn moment when Jesus, your divine son, dying on the cross, confided us to your maternal care. You are our mother, we desire ever to remain your devout children. let us therefore feel the effects of your powerful intercession with Jesus Christ. make your name again glorious in the shrine once renowned throughout England by your visits, favours, and many miracles.

Pray, O holy mother of God, for the conversion of England, restoration of the sick, consolation for the afflicted, repentance of sinners, peace to the departed.

O blessed Mary, mother of God, our Lady of Walsingham, intercede for us.
Amen.

CONGRATULATIONS FR CHRIS!

This photograph was taken in December 2004 (as you can tell from Fr Chris looking much younger). It was in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome after a special mass for students. With two of our students I was returning an icon of Our Lady of Wisdom that Pope St John Paul II gave to students of the world and was going next to Poland.

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.

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.’

Amen.

God bless you,

Fr Chris.
