Communion with God

Be sure that you first preach by the way you live. If you do not, people will notice that you say one thing, but live otherwise, and your words will bring only cynical laughter and a derisive shake of the head. Stay quiet with God. Do not spend your time in useless chatter.

St Charles Borromeo, 1538-1584

Love for the Most Blessed Sacrament

When I am before the Blessed Sacrament I feel such a lively faith that I can’t describe it. Christ in the Eucharist is almost tangible to me … When it is time for me to leave, I have to tear myself away from His sacred presence.

Worthing4Refugees

WORTHING4REFUGESS (Our parish project) Message from the charity: “Thank you for your continuing prayers for the work of Worthing 4 Refugees, who are supporting two Syrian refugee families. As adults in the families return to English classes, we pray for their progress – that it would enable further building of relationships and lead to greater work opportunities. We pray for the children as they settle into new school years. Thinking of recent news from Syria, we pray for all those suffering continued bombing in Idlib, and give thanks for medical staff continuing to give care in very challenging circumstances. We pray also for the churches in Syria, and for those Syrian Christians who have stayed on to serve their neighbours.” As background you might be interested in checking out the website of the charity Open Doors https://www.opendoorsuk.org/ which aims to restore hope and help rebuild lives in Syria.
