WELCOME TO THE PARISH OF 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
VISION STATEMENT FOR THE PARISH
That we deepen our relationship with Christ and the Church through prayer and Sunday Mass, that we provide opportunities to deepen our faith and unity and so by using our gifts and talents, reach out in welcome and hospitality to others.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
In a few weeks’ time we will be having a ‘Called and Gifted’ workshop in our parish – might you think of coming along?
What is Called & Gifted?
Each of us is created uniquely by God, in our time and place, for a purpose. When we understand and allow ourselves to be aligned with that purpose we are energised and fulfilled; and God’s love and provision is able to flow more freely exactly where it is needed, through our spiritual gifts (charisms). Called and Gifted is the discernment process that helps us unlock our story, understand our gifts (charisms) and discover our unique mission.
So often we fail to see the gifts that we have , sometimes other people can help us to discern these hidden gifts. God of course is the prime mover whose Holy Spirit will enable us not only to see the gifts that we have – but also give us the strength to use them!
I hope that you might consider coming along to this workshop – I shall be there as I am sure I still have gifts to discover and use.
Canon David Hopgood

Bamenda Sunday Newsletter for 2019
The latest Bamenda Annual Newsletter is displayed with our own Current Newsletter in the Newsletter section.
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.

Weekend Masses are always on Saturday at 6pm at St Edward’s, and on Sunday at St Marks at 9.30am and St Edward’s at 11am.
