Parish Finances

How you can support our parish during lockdown…

Several people have kindly contacted the parish to ask about how to continue to finance St Bede’s during this difficult time. The easiest solution is to set up a standing order with the bank to pay directly into the parish account
(this can of course be cancelled at any time).

If you wish to do this then please email Fr Simon at the address below and bank details can be provided – please state in your email that you wish to support St Bede’s. You can appreciate that virtually our sole source of income is via the Offertory collection on a Sunday which has of course finished due to the present regulations.

Sincere thanks for your support.

Prayers during the Pandemic

“It was the great biblical scholar, St. Jerome, who said that “ignorance of the scriptures is ignorance of Christ”. The scriptures are a deep well which never runs dry; if we take time to engage with the word of the Lord prayerfully then it will refresh and energise us in God’s service.”

Bishop Robert – Pastoral Letter, September 2019

The God Who Speaks

Scripture is at the centre of everything the Church does. The word of God shapes our prayer and worship. The Bible shows us how to understand the world, how we are called to live and relate to each other.

2020 is the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’ and the 1,600 anniversary of St Jerome’s death. These dates have inspired the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales to dedicate 2020 as a year of focus on the Bible and ‘The God Who Speaks’.

During the year, we will be celebrating, living and sharing God‘s word with an exciting new Scripture initiative. It’s an opportunity to enrich current practice and to develop and explore new ways of responding to ‘The God who Speaks’.

Throughout 2020 there will be a range of events, activities and resources to participate in all around the country. To help achieve transformation in our hearts and in our communities there will be three themes of celebratingliving and sharing God’s word. 

Pope Francis announces a ‘Sunday of the Word of God’

Pope Francis has instituted a day dedicated to celebrating the Word of God.

In a Motu Proprio – a personal decree of the Pope – titled ‘Aperuit illis’, Pope Francis has declared the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time the ‘Sunday of the Word of God’.

Sacramental Preparation

Baptism is the first of the seven Sacraments of the Church. It is a wonderful celebration that marks your child’s entry into the Christian family. . .

Our Confirmation programme for all young people, in Y9 and above, is co-ordinated and celebrated on a Partnership level

The programme for preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are delivered through the Parish and follow the Diocesan Programme. . .

Preparing for a Wedding is complicated, but preparing for marriage addresses the heart of a relationship that needs time and guidance.
