Peterborough Cathedral 'One Mass'

Over 1,500 parishioners packed out Peterborough’s Anglican Cathedral on Saturday evening (June 15) for the two yearly Catholic One Mass. Parishioners from all of Peterborough’s Catholic churches including St Peter & All Souls with the community of Our Lady of Loudes, St Luke’s, Sacred Heart & St Oswald, the Polish Mission, St Olga’s Ukrainian church and the Syro-Malabar community all gathered in the cathedral by kind permission of Cathedral Dean the Very Rev Chris Dalliston.

Over 70 nationalities were represented with their national flags and costumes in a colourful opening procession, along with all Peterborough priests and deacons. Also present were the Catholic Mayor of Peterborough Cllr Marco Cereste and his wife Maddelena Cereste and former MP (now Parliamentary candidate) for Peterborough Paul Bristow and pupils from the local Catholic primary and high schools.

During his homily, Bishop Peter said: “We all work for the sake of the Kingdom, day after day. There are days when we will see some progress, but there are days when we must have patience to wait for the fruits of our labours.

“It is our privilege to be in this place in communion with our brothers and sisters from the Church of England. We must share as much as we can in our common faith bearing common witness in our world to the Kingdom of God.”

Prayers in many different languages were said and there was a wonderful multi-cultural feast afterwards in the cathedral and a First Communion cake was cut by Bishop Peter.

Chief organiser of the Mass was Fr Adam Sowa MS from All Souls with the help of many dedicated parishioners that worked hard and volunteered a lot of their time to put the event together to make the celebration a very special one. At the end of the Mass, Diocesan Medals were presented by Bishop Peter to; Deacon John Bedford, Angelo Cuenca, Jude Antony, Mary Jane Ahearn, Thomas Ahearn & Henrietta Conmy.

Be aware of scams!

There is a scam email going around requesting you to buy vouchers for the 'staff' to thank them for their hard work and asking them to shell out £900 for them and to be reimbursed later. It even suggests which shops to go to get them, or to get them on Amazon, apparently, online. The email appears to be genuine but it is NOT. It appears that the email comes from Fr Adam, but if you check the email address it is we are alerting you to the danger as one parishioner has already fallen for it. Fr Adam or any priest or the office would never email you to buy vouchers. All contact is only from and anything else is a scam. Please contact the parish office if you are unsure. Please do not reply or act on any email that appears to ask you to buy vouchers or part with any money, please block the email and report it as a ‘scam email’.

Season of Creation

season of creation

Season of Creation is fast approaching (1st September-4th October)! Pope Francis has just shared his key message on the theme for this year "To hope and act with Creation".
"To hope and act with creation, then, means to live an incarnational faith, one that can enter into the suffering and hope-filled “flesh” of others, by sharing in the expectation of the bodily resurrection to which believers are predestined in Christ the Lord. In Jesus, the eternal Son who took on human flesh, we are truly children of the Father. Through faith and baptism, our life in the Spirit begins (cf. Rom 8:2), a holy life, lived as children of the Father, like Jesus (cf. Rom 8:14-17), since by the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ lives in us (cf. Gal 2:20). In this way, our lives can become a song of love for God, for humanity, with and for creation, and find their fullness in holiness."
