Come Holy Spirit and renew the face of the Earth!

Congratulations to those Men Ordained Deacon this morning at England's Catholic Mother Church, Westminster Cathedral. The Ordinariate has much to thank for the working and prompting of the Holy Spirit in these candidates for the Sacred Priesthood!

 Praise AlmightyGod for courage and the Holy Father's vision for Unity and Truth. 
PENTECOST MASS TIMES: Fr Bob White is celebrating Sunday Masses at St Pius X Hockley 9am Parish  & 10.30am. Ordinariate. Also the Vigil Mass 5.30pm At St Teresas Rochford Sat 26th Fr Jeff Woolnough celebrates Pentecost Masses at St Peter's Eastwood 8.30am & 10am.

Statistics...for those interested in that sort of thing?

When I was Anglican Parish Priest of Hockley we ran a very good website, full of photos showing the vibrancy of our Parish life- (that particular site since closed).

My webmaster often informed me of the number of visits it attracted on a weekly basis. 

However, this little ol' site has attracted, in under a year over 34,000 hits...that's pretty impressive and it makes me think of the wider audience that we now attract as members of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church?
 You know what they say...A family that prays together...
