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

This Sunday is Good Shepherd Sunday. The image of Jesus with a lamb around his neck is an endearing one. It reminds us that Jesus is like the shepherd with 100 sheep, who lost one, and did not rest until he had found it and brought it home.

Jesus is like that with us too! When we have erred and strayed from his path like lost sheep, he does not rest until we have been restored to him.

Some people, who have been away from the church for a while are like those lost sheep. We are fortunate that they can find a home in our local KIT Group, who will help them safely back into the fold.

Shepherds look after their sheep lovingly, they feed them, they protect them from anything that would harm them and they go out to look for those that are lost. They lay down their lives for their sheep. This is Jesus, our Good Shepherd, what more do we need?

Today, our priests are our Good Shepherds. Let us pray for more vocations to the Priesthood on this Vocations Sunday.

Parish Centre

Following on from our parish meeting about the redevelopment of our Parish Centre, it was suggested that we form a fund raising group – which will not only raise money for the Centre, but also create activities that will build our community together.
Mary Reynolds will lead the group. If you would like to be a part of this development in our parish then please speak either to Mary, Fr David, or contact the parish office.
