What kind of future can we build in the context of Brexit? Can we meet the challenges of globalisation? What do the events of 500 years ago teach us about reform and renewal?

Motorist’s Prayer: Grant me a ready hand, a watchful eye that none may suffer hurt as I pass by. You give us life/ I pray no act of mine may take away or mar this gift of thine. Shield those dear Lord, who bear me company from fools and fire and all calamity. Teach me to use my car for others’ need nor miss through lack of wit or love of speed, the beauties of thy world/ That thus I may with joy and courtesy go on my way. Amen.

 

The Shop:You are invited to visit our shop. There is a wide range of religious objects and gifts as well as copies of Fr Brian’s books and CD’s of our regular singers.
