St John the Baptist Parish Together we proclaim “Jesus the Good News”


It must be said that Christ himself ‘is present in his word since it is he who speaks when Scripture is read in Church.’ Indeed, ’the liturgical celebration becomes the continuing, complete and effective proclamation of God’s word The word of God, constantly proclaimed in the liturgy, is always a living and effectively word through the power of the Holy Spirit. It expresses the Father’s love that never fails in its effectiveness towards us.’ The Church has always realised that in the liturgical action the word of God is accompanied by the interior working of the Holy Spirit who makes it effective in the hearts of the faithful.

Verbum Domini (2010) 52.

All are welcome even if you are not actively involved in these ministries, the workshops aim to enrich your understanding of God’s Word and the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Please see Fr Dominic or contact the Parish Office if interested.
