Sadly our Church Building is Closed for Individual Prayer at the Moment

Mass will still be celebrated, the offices of morning and evening prayer will still be sung and the needs of the parish of Hemsworth will still be prayed for. Do please make sure you follow the daily posts being made on our Facebook page.

For pastoral care, please don’t hesitate to contact the Rector He is endeavouring to produce a weekly pastoral message. If you do not currently receive it, but would like to do so, again, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Walsingham Youth Pilgrimage 2020

Join us for the 2020 Youth Pilgrimage:

Monday 3rd – Friday 7th August

Inseparable – Friends for Life

2020 Youth Pilgrimage – led by Bishop Philip North

The Youth Pilgrimage is a week of lively worship, teaching, fellowship and fun for 11-18 year olds.

Our friends are some of the most important and influential people in our lives. Often we have many different types of friends: best friends, school friends, sports team friends, church friends and people we are friends with on social media who we might not have ever met in person.

Friendship is a gift from God and our friendships should model Christ’s love for us. There are not many things in this world that are more valuable than true friendship. We are called to love our friends for who they are, not what they can offer us.

The 2020 Youth Pilgrimage will explore the theme of Christian friendship with its ups and downs, helping us to look to Christ as our model so that we can be the best friends possible.

Christmass Confessions


External preparations form part of the season of Advent: they help create the Christmas atmosphere of joy and expectation. A lot of people are extremely busy at this time. All this is part of the Advent season but it’s not the most important thing. Let us never lose sight of the utmost importance of our interior preparation to celebrate the first coming of Our Lord: by preparing my heart, so that Jesus may be happy” as the little girl once said with all the simplicity and truth which can only come from a child. We do that, or rather God does that, in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, or Confession as it’s better known. It offers us an important way of getting closer to God (or rather God getting close to us) – to be forgiven for our sins. As Pope Francis puts it “it’s an encounter with the Lord’s mercy which spurs us on to do our best”.

Confession is not a tool of spiritual one-upmanship for the highly committed and ultra-pious. It should be a normative part of the Christian life and above all something we should offer to new Christians and to the undecided. How can we hold back from that wonderful joy of knowing God’s complete forgives us? This beautiful sacrament has the power to renew your lives.

Now is the time to plan, prepare and make your Christmas Confession. Is your heart ready to receive the Christ Child this Christmass?? Come and celebrate this sacrament of renewal and transformation.
