4th Sunday of  Easter  GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY 10.30am. Ordinariate Mass at Hockley Celebrant & Preacher Fr. Jeff Woolnough


The celebration of Good Shepherd Sunday is an opportunity to pray that the Lord will raise up more people to inspire the Church as priests and consecrated women and men. This is a moment of prayer for these specific vocations and these resources are offered to help you foster that prayer. The focus this year is on how a vocation to be a religious or a priest changes not only the life of the person called but also the life of those to whom they will minister. Above all, this is a moment to invite everyone to be involved in the process of changing lives through their prayer for vocations. Coupled with the nurturing atmosphere in their homes, parishes and schools this will enable those who are called to respond to such a vocation.
Everybody is involved in the work of this Sunday, a time of grace for all the faithful as we pray together that the Lord will …

Dear friends

He says that all the promises found in the Old Testament have been fulfilled in His passion, death, and resurrection. And He tells them that these Scriptures foretell the mission of the Church - to preach forgiveness of sins to all the nations, beginning at Jersusalem.
In today’s First Reading and Epistle, we see the beginnings of that mission. And we see the apostles interpreting the Scriptures as Jesus taught them to.
God has brought to fulfillment what He announced beforehand in all…

April 12th Divine Mercy Sunday

10.30am. Ordinariate Sung Mass at Hockley Celebrant Fr. Jeff Woolnough

Background of the Divine Mercy Devotion From the diary of a young Polish nun, a special devotion began spreading throughout the world in the 1930s. The message is nothing new, but is a reminder of what the Church has always taught through scripture and tradition: that God is merciful and forgiving and that we, too, must show mercy and forgiveness. But in the Divine Mercy devotion, the message takes on a powerful new focus, calling people to a deeper understanding that God’s love is unlimited and available to everyone — especially the greatest sinners.

The message and devotion to Jesus asThe Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread.

The message of mercy …
