PRAYER IDEAS from CAFOD:
In a time of isolation, take some time to pause and focus on your wellbeing. We have prayers, liturgies and reflections to support you in your prayer life.
While the kids are off school and you’re in need of some fun activities, our education resources pages are packed with great ideas.
Join our new Facebook group so that we can gather as an online family and offer you our prayers, online talks and isolation activities in one place, please do share your own ideas too.
We are hosting an online children’s liturgy this coming Sunday 22nd March, you can sign up now.

A message from Lizzie Wakeling, Diocesan Youth Advisor:
During this time of separation, we have the opportunity to build our relationship with God. One way you can do that is to reflect, pray and love. Starting this Sunday (Palm Sunday – the beginning of Holy Week), https://easterjourney2020.wordpress.com/ will be posting daily resources to help you celebrate Easter. You can also follow on twitter @easterjourney20 or Instagram @theeasterjourney2020, I do hope that you will take the opportunity to look at these resources each day, and that they will help you to grow in faith and give you hope at this difficult time. God bless you all, Lizzie ? Lizzie Wakeling Diocesan, Youth Advisor, T: 01293 651158, E: firstname.lastname@example.org
Cardinal Nichols asks us to Pray for our Priests, particularly on Maundy Thursday.
In May 2009 the Parish of the Nativity of the Lord was officially inaugurated by Bishop Kieran Conry, bringing together in a single united community worshippers from the former Parishes of St Joseph’s in Redhill, Holy Family in Reigate and St Teresa of the Child Jesus in Merstham. Whilst retaining its three Churches, the new Parish is administered as a single Parish under the care of Fr Tony Bridson. Working with Fr Tony are Deacon Tim Murrill and key groups of lay representatives from the three Churches.
Christian Unity is not attained so much by agreement about some shared value, but by doing something concrete together for those who bring us closest to the Lord: the poor, for in them Jesus is present (Mt 25:40). Sharing in works of charity helps us make greater progress.
