Diocesan Vision: Unfolding God’s Plan
This weekend we have an important Pastoral Letter from Archbishop Bernard introducing the Diocesan Vision on how he intends our Archdiocese to move forward over the coming years.
Archbishop Bernard says that after a year of lockdown and restrictions we need to make a fresh beginning. The aim is for clergy and lay faithful to work closely together to create vibrant communities of faith, joyful in the service of God and neighbour.
You can find the Pastoral Letter in text, audio and video on the Diocesan website http://www.birminghamdiocese.org.uk/vision
Please take and use a Prayer Card which contains a special prayer for the Diocesan Vision.
Recently Dead; please pray for Reggie Crawford who died this week. Funeral arrangements to follow.
THE NICENE CREED
I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God,
Born of the Father before all ages, God from God, Light from Light,
True God from true God, begotten not made, consubstantial with the Father; Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
And by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the father and the Son is adored and glorified,
Who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
