WELCOME TO THE CATHOLIC PARISH IN WINDSOR

I hope that this website might extend a welcome and assurance that here is a place that you will be given a dignity and a hospitality. Perhaps you are looking for a time of Mass or the possibility of booking a baptism or a wedding. You may be new to the area and thinking of joining this community of faith. Whatever the reason I hope and pray that your needs are met and that we will be able to help you in your search.

 THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

The account of the transfiguration of Jesus up the mountain is well known to us and is always read on the 2nd Sunday of Lent. It is a watershed moment in Jesus’s relationship with his disciples – for Peter, James and John perceive the divinity that exists within Jesus, a divinity that is affirmed by the voice heard in the cloud – the appearance of Moses and Elijah portray how Jesus is fulfilling the Law and the Prophets. The disciples may well be overwhelmed with fear – but they realise that they have entered a new chapter in their journey with Jesus. Sometimes there are occasions in our lives, when something happens that enables us to realise that we are seeing and understanding Jesus in a new light – this can be  good and sometimes frightening! Just like the disciples gradually understand more about Gods revelation and presence among us.

Throughout history God revealed his presence, often in the form of a cloud – God speaks in the form of a cloud and claims Jesus as his own Son. We can sometimes see clouds in our lives as times when we feel lost or uncertain what is going on – they can feel very isolating moments when we feel far from God. It is on those occasions that we perhaps should remember that God can and does speak to us in moments of unknowing. For the mission of Jesus the Messiah is to proclaim the Kingdom of God through the cross and resurrection  – the disciples found that hard to grasp – as perhaps we do also! Lent enables us to ponder and see through the clouds of our lives.
