The Catholic Churches in Stevenage

May 2021

You will be my witnesses!

As we celebrate the Resurrection during the 50 days of the Easter season, we look forward to the Feast of the Ascension followed by the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.  As Christians, we are sent out by the risen Lord to proclaim to everyone that he has won the victory over death by his rising, and opened the gates of heaven for all who welcome his love.  What Jesus said to his apostles before the Ascension he says to us too:  “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and then you will be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8).

A practical way of being witnesses is simply to spread the word that our churches are open for business!  There are still some in our local community who are not aware that we have a full Mass schedule in our parishes; our churches are also open for times of personal prayer, and we await gradual easing of restrictions due to the pandemic in the next few weeks.

We keep specially in our prayers those preparing for First Holy Communion, our young people receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation around this time, and of course our sick and those who care for them.  May the peace of the risen Jesus fill our hearts, so that we become peacemakers for our world!
