Mission Prayer

As we prepare for our Mission please remember to pray our mission prayer:


New Awakenings
Father, pour out your Holy Spirit upon us
to reawaken in us a thirst and passion for mission.
Grant that your gifts of faith, hope and love
will lead us in true discipleship,
so that the Good News of Jesus Christ
will find a home in our hearts,
and open us to the needs of all.
Then, trusting in your Almighty power,
give us the desire and the courage
to proclaim our faith in Him to a broken world.
Amen

Confirmation Mass

We would like to congratulate all the young men and women who received the sacrament of confirmation yesterday from Bishop Declan. A special Mass was held at Our Lady of Lourdes for all the candidates from our communion of parishes, and we were pleased to welcome guests from Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Downend and Frenchay.


A wonderful evening was shared by all.
