Gospel Year of Mark

The Coming The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the son of God. . . . John appeared, baptising in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sin. And all the country of Judea and Jerusalem were going out to him and were being baptised by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John wore a leather belt around his waist and ate locusts and wild honey. And he preached, saying, “After me comes one who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I have baptised you with water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit. (Mark 1:1,4- 8 ESV-CE)

Diocese Year of Prayer 2024 and

Jubilee Year 2025 resources

In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee Year 'Pilgrims of Hope', 2024 has been designated a Year of Prayer by Pope Francis, starting this Advent. There is a particular focus on the Our Father, which presents us with a great opportunity to go back to the very basics of prayer. So this week, let us re-focus on the Our Father, and say the prayer slowly, making a special effort to attend to the words, and notice if a word, phrase, or line strikes you and remains in your heart. Download your weekly Lords Prayer leaflet HERE for the 5 week Lenten Course “We dare to Say” The theme for the third session on The Lord’s Prayer is: 'Give Us Our Daily Bread’. The old dictum, Deus Providebit (God will provide) is borne from experience, not always obvious but nevertheless real. Read More…. Over the coming weeks and months, we will provide suggestions and resources on how you might begin to do that. View Resources
