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.
Canon David Hopgood
THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
Jesus has used a very simple analogy—one familiar to anyone who has grown a seed. When we sow a seed, there comes a point where the seed ceases to exist—it becomes soft and collapses as the new life germinates within it. If the same seed had fallen onto a path or onto stony ground, it would have been trodden underfoot—or gradually died from dehydration.
Translated into human terms, such a death is meaningless—a life has been lived and has ended. For many people today, that is the sum total of what they expect from life; they will be born-live-die- and then, that will be the end. In today’s Gospel, Jesus likens himself to that grain of wheat which is about to fall into the earth. Death is the means of life. Jesus’ life wasn’t taken from him. He gave it—gave it out of love of God and of us. The way of love is the way of the cross, but the way of the cross leads to resurrection.
May we imitate him in loving obedience, willingly being buried and yielding ourselves to Him—so that through such a death we may bear much fruit.
