The Parish is a major point of reference for the Christian people, even for the non-practicing. It is the most important locus in which the Christian community is formed and expressed. 

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

At over 2,000 years old, the Catholic Church is the oldest institution in the Western hemisphere and has over a billion members across the world. Here at St. Luke & St. Teresa Catholic Parish, we warmly welcome all sincere seekers of truth, regardless of belief or religion. You can be sure of a listening ear to any questions you may have about our faith. If you are thinking about becoming Catholic, the first step is to simply visit the parish or join one of our Masses so you can experience what it’s like.  Take time to pray and ask God how you can discover and strengthen your faith. Talk to a priest to discuss your thoughts and they can answer any questions you may have.

THE JOY AND BLESSING OF   COMMITMENT TO THE CATHOLIC FAITH 

The Church is our worldwide family, and all are welcome, we respect individual differences and diversity. Our membership formation and communication are adapted  to accommodate all. 

If you wish to become a Catholic, you will be admitted as a Catechumen and begin a formal learning period about the Catholic faith, the authentic  Teachings of  Christ, Relationship with Christ and people, the  Sacraments and how to build solid life of Prayer and active faith. This is called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adult (RCIA).  The program is tailored to suit your needs and time. 

Children and younger people can be received into the Church  at the request of the parents who are committed  to bring them up in the practice of the faith. 

It is a joy to be received into this universal family of the Church and we enjoy special blessing promised by the Lord (John 3:16 -17)

MERE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY: CATHOLIC MASS IN MERE ONCE MORE

Fr Francis celebrated the first Mass in Mere at St. Micheal’s on Friday 27 October 2023.  It was a great joy that so many people attended the Mass, including some of St Michael’s congregation, on a lovely sunny day.  We were warmly welcome by Kit Stallard, one of St Michael’s church wardens, and Ann Dethick who also provided tea and coffee after Mass. We hope this is the start of a regular Mass at St Michael’s.  The second Mass was celebrated by Fr Francis on Friday 1 December and more Masses are planned in 2024.

May the Lord bless and keep us in His love. Amen.

Thank you beloved Parishioners, Families and Friends for your faith and commitment.

DO JOIN US AT MASS THIS WEEK AND BE ASSURED OF OUR PRAYERS
