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.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT

5th December 2021  

Advent it’s a time of joyful anticipation. It is a time, the prophet Baruch says, ‘to take off your robe of mourning and misery,’ for God is leading his people ‘with mercy and justice for company.’ God’s people ‘are wrapped in the cloak of justice from God’ and they will be named by God forever the peace of justice.

Saint Paul also speaks of joyful anticipation, of waiting for the day of Christ Jesus. He encourages the Philippines to grow in love, understanding, wealth of experience and blameless conduct.  He concludes with a wish that you may be found rich in the harvest of justice which Jesus Christ has ripened in you.

The message of John the Baptist is to prepare a way for the coming of Christ to make straight the winding roads, and to make smooth the rough ways. We need a baptism of repentance, a cleansing of old ways and a commitment to a new way of living . We need to challenge the wisdom of the world in a way that would challenge by that great prophet in the desert.

Yes, Advent is a time of empowerment .

Canon David Hopgood

HOW TO PRAY

“Prayer.” When you see that word, what thoughts or images come to mind? Does talking to God come easy to you? Or do you struggle to pray?  Knowing what to say to God doesn’t always feel easy, and sometimes, prayer gets weighed down by our misconceptions about what a conversation with God should look like. Canon David has offered the following  short document containing advice and help when praying to God.
