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
The word that comes to my mind when I read the Gospel and the first reading from Isaiah is LIGHT. They speak of the light that has come into the world.
This light is of course the light of Jesus and enables us to see the way we can be led to the Father. However, this light of Christ is the gift of the Holy Spirit that enables us to see our lives bathed in new light – this lead opens for us the way to ministry as we see happening in the Gospel with the call to the disciples. The ministry of Jesus is one of collaboration! He calls them to become ‘fishers of men’. We might expect Jesus, as the Son of God, to be completely sufficient unto himself! He certainly could have taken this route, but just as the Father sought out human collaborators in the Old Testament – that we call prophets, so Jesus does the same. This method of the Godhead continues to this day. God wants us to collaborate, to work alongside the deity so that we might bring the light of God into other people’s lives – to bring about peace and justice on earth.
This light has been handed on to you – will you respond and work with God?
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.
