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 FOR THE WEEK
It has been a tradition within the Catholic Church to pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the days between Ascension and Pentecost. Please would you consider offering a Novena to the Holy Spirit from Friday 31st May to Saturday 8th June for the New Evangelisation in our Diocese.
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray during this same period for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. As Catholics, we can support this initiative with our Pentecost Novena, Prayer of the Faithful and an encouragement for us to pray, as we normally do, with the particular intention for our loved ones to come to faith in Jesus Christ.”
I would invite you to pray that those who are thinking about becoming Catholics might be given the grace and strength to come forward and through the RCIA (the preparation that we offer in the parish) that they might be given the grace and inspiration to become Catholics.
Between the 31st May and the 8th June (Ascension and Pentecost) please pray this pray every day.
Almighty God your ascended Son has sent us into the world to preach the Good News of your Kingdom. Inspire us with your Spirit and fill our hearts with the fire of your love, that many might hear your Word and be drawn to know you more dearly by becoming members of our Church Community. Through Christ our Lord.
Canon David Hopgood

Book of Remembrance
The Bereavement Group have suggested that we have a dignified book of Remembrance that we can write in names of people who have had their Funeral Mass here. This book would be on display in St Edward’s opened each day so that it commemorates the day that the person died. If anybody would like to contribute for this please speak to Fr David.
