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.

SUNDAY ZOOM MASS NOW ON SATURDAY AT 6pm

Our Zoom Mass will now change to be celebrated on a Saturday evening at 6pm.  Doors open will be at 5.30pm – to avoid the rush of people at 5.55.
The move of day is because of the difficulty that so many have experienced in getting in over the last two weeks. Apparently Sunday morning Zoom is at top capacity – hence the difficulty we have had! The Password and ID will be the same as before.

If this is your first visit, you will need to email  canondavid@catholicwindsor.org to obtain the ID and Password. (for security reasons this cannot be given out on the website).

WEDNESDAY ZOOM MASS AT 6pm

Each Wednesday there will also be a Zoom Mass at 1800. Same ID and password as Sunday.
Let us try to stay connected to our parish and Eucharist.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK FROM CANON DAVID 

Some months ago, I established a leadership team in the parish to assist me in the day-to-day running of parish activity, as well as planning for the long-term vision of the parish. Although I established this group in some form of trepidation (as it was new), I have found our meetings to be extremely helpful – it is good to bounce ideas on a small group of people so that hopefully I can come to good decisions. We started meeting every two weeks, but since lockdown we have been meeting every Friday morning via zoom. Now each member of the leadership team has been allocated various groups and activities in the parish, not to oversee or interfere! But rather to be a point of contact and good communication. This I believe will build up the unity of the parish so that we are all in our various activities, groups, or indeed as individuals, trying to live out the vision statement for the parish that I offered you some months ago. Soon on the website you will see pictures of those who are on the leadership team. That ministry is one of service. They have certainly been of service to me and I am sure will be to our parish community.
In the long term we hope to establish a process whereas a parish we can come together and plan a mission statement – so that everything we do in the future will be with the aim of fulfilling this mission statement. I believe this will give us a real sense of purpose and energy in our parish community.
I realize that this is long term, and we have many months perhaps before we can gather together as a large group, but we always need to look to the future with hope and confidence. Today being the feast of Pentecost reminds me of the need to allow the Spirit of God to guide and inspire us together
