 “Weekly News” for 




 February 4th 2018 -2ND SUNDAY BEFORE LENT

 A warm welcome to any visitors with us today


The wisdom of God, present before the world began, has become flesh in Christ to make God known on earth. We come to him, our Lord and our companion, to worship.



Almighty God, you have created the heavens and the earth

and made us in your own image:

Teach us to discern your hand in all your works and your likeness in all your children;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit

reigns supreme over all things, now and for ever.  Amen


TODAY’S READINGS (Page 446/448)

First Reading                                   Proverbs 8: 1, 22-31

When God made the world, Wisdom was with him, as his companion, and his delight and joy, working together in the creation of the world.


Second Reading                              Colossians 1.15-20

The wisdom who was there before the beginning of creation is now revealed as Christ incarnate, God on earth.


Gospel                                           St. John 1.1-14

John, with their sense of awe, wonder and mystery, tells of Jesus’ coming as the light of the world and of his presence with us since the beginning of time.



God our creator, by your gift

the tree of life was set at the heart of the earthly paradise,

and the bread of life at the heart of your Church:

May we who have been nourished at your table on earth

be transformed by the glory of the Saviour’s cross

and enjoy the delights of eternity;   through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
