Sweet sacrament we thee adore...The REAL presence

 On this great Solemnity of Ss Peter and Paul we look to the successor of Peter, our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, thanking him from the bottom of our hearts for his vision of Unity and Truth, created in the Personal Ordinariates. What a treasure and gift this is to the Church. Jesus said: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it...
Let us pray that many more will accept the gracious invitation to come home to the Catholic Church.

Sunday's celebration of Corpus Christi was kept well at Hockley. 
The Ordinariate 10.30am Solemn Mass was well attended and a procession of The Sacred Host through the village is something we could never do at our previous location, with the parish church located well outside of the centre of Hockley! 























A great witness then, to the Catholic Faith and belief in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. After mass we enjoyed drinks on the newly constructed sun terrace at St Pius to celebrate our priest's anniversary of ordination.  15 months down the line and it's the best thing we've ever done;members by gracious invitation of his Holiness Pope Benedict XVI of the Holy Catholic Church. Laus Deo!

'...it would be absolutely intriguing to know how many Mirfield and St Stephen's House graduands from the last 40 years are now CATHOLIC priests. There's work for a statistician? We think the results could be jaw dropping'!







A request for Fr Gerry Drummond...please remind us how many of your year group at Mirfield are now Catholic Priests...estimate will suffice,brother!

Happy Anniversary to , 'The Brentwood Seven'.
