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.

ATTENDING MASS and Coronavirus
Under the new Lockdown rules beginning on the 6th January, Churches are allowed to stay open for private prayer and for the celebration of Mass with of course social distancing. There is no need to book a place to attend Mass, stewards will greet you at the door and ensure that the church does not exceed the maximum number ( which depends on the number of ‘bubbles’ that attend). Let us keep safe and pray for each other during these days .
Mass times for St Edwards that are streamed on the internet
Mass will be held at St Marks on Sunday morning at 9.30am but will not be streamed.
These weekday times may change due to unforeseen circumstances, so please consult the weekly newsletter for details.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
We start Ordinary Time with a reading from John, not from Mark, whose year it is. John shows us how Jesus is starting to call his disciples to follow him. This calling is reflected in the First Reading, by God calling Samuel.
John the Baptist reveals that Jesus is the Lamb of God and Andrew calls him the Messiah. John shows us a gradual recognition of who Jesus is. The calling of Samuel and the first disciples in the two readings is known as a vocation.
A vocation is God calling to us in many ways and at different levels. It is not always as dramatic as the call was to Samuel, or as real as the first disciples. We often feel the call in our hearts and in the reflective moments in our lives, to show our Christian faith, to the rest of the world.
The call of Samuel and the call of the disciples are both relevant for our lives. Just as Samuel was called to be a prophet, so we are called to work in spreading the Good News, often in specific ways.
The call of the disciples applies to us as we are all called to be disciples at our baptism.
