The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

May the God of peace make you perfect and holy; and may you all be kept safe and blameless, spirit, soul and body, for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

A Thought for Today

Come back to your heart, and from there, to God, for the path is not long from your heart to God. All of the difficulties that are troubling you come from what is outside of you, you who are the exile of your own heart. You let yourself be moved by what is outside of yourself and you lose yourself. You are within, they are outside; gold, silver, and all kinds of money, clothes, clients, the family … they are all outside.

Could you come and sleep outside overnight at Walsingham House at Abbotswick

for one night, in the Easter holidays?

It will be as authentic as it is possible for one night to be

no tents, just a sleeping bag and a mat, or even cardboard to sleep on or under;

each participant will bring their own bedding.

 It is open to those of all ages, from 15 upwards.

It will be wrapped in prayer, with Mass at 11.15pm

then settling down for the night 

12 midnight – 7.00am 

And if you wanted to come earlier, from 8pm, we will show the film

“A streetcat named Bob”

and let you hear first-hand from people who have been street homeless
