Welcome to the online presence of the Catholic community of Bearwood, near Birmingham. We strive to follow Our Lord Jesus Christ as disciples in mission, to remain faithful to the teaching of His Apostles and to be obedient to His command to “do this in remembrance of me”. We want to be witnesses to the love God has for our world through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ, and the new life He offers to all in the Holy Spirit.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”– The Gospel of Matthew, chapter 28, verses 19 & 20
“Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’”– The Gospel of Luke, chapter 22, verse 19
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free”The Gospel of Luke, chapter 4, verse 18
A Prayer for Our Parish
Pour out your spirit upon us,
And on the people of this parish, and grant us,
A new vision of your glory,
A new experience of your power,
A new faithfulness to your word,
And a new consecration to your service,
That your love may grow among us,
And your kingdom come;
Through Christ Our Lord.
