One of my responsibilities as Parish priest
is to try to ensure that the times of Mass cater for the majority of parishioners.
If there is anyone who had normally attended Mass on a Saturday at The Holy Rood
and would find it impossible to get to Christ the King, please let one of us know,
and we will try to arrange transport for you.
with every blessing,
Please look at the Newsletter web page
for Mass Times in the current Newsletter
and everything else.

How Does a Person Become a Catholic?
Well, there are several ways. Let’s look at the two principal routes:
On the one hand, children who are born or adopted into Catholic families are usually baptised as infants. Their faith is nurtured in their family environment and, as they grow older, they receive formal instruction through their parish school or religious education programme.
On the other hand, adults with little, no or different spiritual background looking perhaps to become members of the Catholic Church are encouraged to:
Think as they learn about our faith
Ask what it means to join our community
Learn about what we stand for
Decide whether to become one of us
Prepare to be received
Join the Catholic Community
Participate in the life of the Church
In the Catholic Church we warmly welcome members of all ages and try to provide appropriate spiritual formation to suit each person’s needs.
So, if you feel you might like to join the Catholic Church or if you would like to bring a child forward for baptism or if you’d simply like to learn more about the procedures and our faith, please get in touch with any of us above.
If you would just like to find out more about Christianity, or are wondering about what it means to be a Catholic you might like to visit these websites for more information:

Christianity The purpose is to inform people about Jesus Christ and Christianity. It is our hope that men and women will take steps of faith and become ever-closer followers of Jesus Christ as a result of what they discover. It is our prayer that having an active faith will improve their lives.
