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

Today is the Feast of Corpus Christi-the Body and Blood of Christ. Jesus offers us the promise of eternal life. To accept Jesus as the bread of heaven is not only life and spiritual nourishment for this world but glory in the world to come.

When we receive from the Lord’s Table we unite ourselves to Jesus Christ, who makes us sharers in his body and blood and partakers of his divine life. This Heavenly food is healing for both body and soul and strength for our journey heavenward. The best place to meet Jesus is in the Eucharist.

When we approach the Table of the Lord, what do we expect to receive? Healing, pardon, comfort, and rest for our soul? The Lord has much more for us, more than we can ask or imagine. Through the Eucharist the risen Jesus becomes for us the food of eternal life.  He acts as living bread within us. We cannot be closer to Jesus than at this moment.

It is a wonderful and humbling experience to be able to take Holy Communion to those parishioners who are sick or housebound and cannot get to Church. They are able to join, with us, the rest of the community, in receiving Our Lord.

A Sacrament is a sign of grace and when we receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist, we have a living encounter with Jesus Christ, in person, and he renews our lives.

Deacon George
