TODAY: [1] Green vestments return to Sunday Mass with the Thirteenth Sunday of the Year. The Liturgical colour Green symbolises Hope and Growth – our hope in Christ’s saving love and our growing as a global community of missionary disciples. We celebrate Jesus Christ who calls us to follow Him, work with Him, proclaim His love to our world. If we embrace His love, He sets us free to become a sacrament or living icon of His love in our world, bringing healing and the hope of justice and peace.
[2] Our parish was recognised a few years ago as the first ‘Church of Sanctuary’ by the City of Sanctuary movement. We welcome the Co-ordinator of ‘Bristol City of Sanctuary’ who will make an Appeal to support its work of advocating and serving our asylum community in the Bristol area. Please be generous.

NEXT SUNDAY: [1] On the Fourteenth Sunday of the Year, we celebrate Jesus who calls us to the Joy of the Gospel – and sends us to proclaim Good News of Healing and Peace so others can experience the incomparable joy of living the New Life of Christ in service of the world, especially of the poor, disadvantaged and rejected.
[2] Mass with the Catholic Handicapped Fellowship at 3.00pm – all welcome.
