Church Bulletin 21.11.21
Solemnity of Christ Our Universal King
Thanks to Ann C for this week’s bulletin. Thank you to our choir and musicians for leading us in worship.
Please do not be backward in coming forward to join! Remembering Christ is King does not mean we are
subservient but in our worship of him are raised by him to be anointed and share his royal status. In what ways
do we live out our leadership in His Kingdom? Thank you to our school governors at both Catholic Primary schools
or any other schools in which you lead others. Please consider filling vacancies at both schools.
Thanks too, to our dedicated teachers and other school staff.
Laying of wreaths took place at Crook, Tow Law and Wolsingham for Remembrance Sunday. Thank you to all who took part in any way.
THIS SUNDAY IS YOUTH SUNDAY. How can our young people take their place in the Church? What can we do to make them feel welcome?
I am grateful to the YMT for their active engagement with youth in our diocese. After 20 years of attending the Youth2000 festival
in Walsingham do not be afraid to encourage young people to attend the festivals even if they have stopped going to church.
SYNOD 2021-2013 COMMUNION-PARTICIPATION-MISSION Last week I think I put 2 questions on for consideration – please discuss these in your families, with other parishioners. A synodal church journeys together to announce the gospel. How is this “journeying together happening today in your local church? What steps does the Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our journeying together”
Let us add a couple more questions particularly in the light of our experience of Covid-19
What strengths and weaknesses have emerged during this period as a faithful community?
What has been the experience of the touch of God in these times?
What challenges and vulnerabilities have been exposed in our lives, both individually and at church level, which need to be addressed?
SYCAMORE IN ADVENT Sycamore is an informal course about the Christian faith and its relevance for life today. It gives you space to meet other people, share ideas, explore your beliefs, and think about questions that really matter. Each session involves a short film and time for discussion. Everyone is welcome.
The first of these courses will take place on the four Sundays during Advent at 4 pm, starting on Sunday 28th November. The sessions will be:
First Sunday of Advent – The Search for Happiness
Second Sunday of Advent – A God who speaks
Third Sunday of Advent – The Bible
