DIVINE MERCY Second Sunday of Easter: He is Risen, Alleluia!
10.30am. Ordinariate Sung Mass celebrated by Fr Jeff at St. Pius X.

 "Who will paint You as beautiful as You are?" In 1931, our Blessed Lord appeared to St. Faustina in a vision. She saw Jesus clothed in a white garment with His right hand raised in blessing. His left hand was touching His garment in the area of the Heart, from where two large rays came forth, one red and the other pale. She gazed intently at the Lord in silence, her soul filled with awe, but also with great joy. Jesus said to her: Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You. I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. I also promise victory over [its] enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I Myself will defend it as My own glory. I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this ima…

Surrexit Alleluia!

Joining the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham

The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham is a branch of the Roman Catholic Church with groups forming comprised of ex Anglican Clergy and laity in England Scotland and Wales.

Members are received into full communion with the Holy see after appropriate preparation and worship at local Catholic parishes with their group and clergy.

Our Ordinary needs no introduction: The Right Reverend Monsignor Keith Newton is our Shepherd and friend and acts vicariously on behalf of our Bishop, Pope Benedict XVI. This is the Holy Father's initiative and we are a group of Catholic Christians so very privileged to have been among the first wave of parishes to settle into Catholic life!

Fathers Jeff Woolnough & Bob White continue to serve our people with passion and zeal! Fr Jeff is also Priest in Charge of St Peter's RC Church Eastwood where we often meet. Our base at St Pius X Hockley is now our home and we give continued thanks to the Parish Priest, Fr Gerry Drummond for his hospi…

Holy Week Receptions

The joys of being Catholic!

May we in the Hockley Odinariate offer our prayers for those entering into full communion with the Catholic Church this week. In our own neck of the woods, to the group at Harlow led by their pastor John Corbyn,we say: 'Welcome Home'!

It was pleasing to read in the national press that in Darlington, a large group under the leadership of their pastor, Ian Grieves is also to be received this Holy Week.
Take courage, all. It really is the best thing that you will ever do! We think of this time last year and just can't quite believe how far we have travelled together in faith, hope and love.

May God bless our Pope!
