Peace Sunday


The Bishops of England and Wales invite us to keep this Sunday, 15 January, as a day of prayer for world peace and to reflect on the theme Pope Francis has chosen for the annual World Peace Day: “Nonviolence – a style of politics for peace”.

Making peace starts with me

When I respect myself and other people and keep from saying or doing mean things to others.
When I listen carefully to others, especially when they disagree with me.
When I care about others’ feelings and don’t always try to get my own way.
When I say I’m sorry and mean it when I hurt another person.
When I forgive others when they hurt me, and don’t hold a grudge.
When I find safe words and ways to talk and act even when I’m angry, and try to solve problems peacefully.
When I treat the earth and all living things with care and respect.
When I find fun ways to play and TV programmes to watch that don’t make hurting others look exciting or fun.
When I can speak to others when they hurt or use harmful words, and stand up for those who are being treated unfairly.
When I follow Jesus and his way I am on a path to peace.

A six-part series exploring the treasures of our faith as expressed in the Creed we say at Sunday Mass continues this Wednesday, 25 January, 7.30 – 9.00 pm in the Holy Family Chapel at St Benedict’s. The sessions will include DVD interviews with prominent men and women of faith, testimonies from a variety of people, Scripture and Catechism quotations, questions for discussion and times of prayerful reflection.


The annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity began last Wednesday, 18 January. Because of the Polish Mass at St Oswald’s, St Benedict’s are hosting an Ecumenical Service this weekend, Sunday 22 January, at 4.00 pm for Churches Together in Warrington East. The service will last about 30 minutes and will be followed by refreshments in the sacristy. Please do come along if you can. It is only by meeting with other Christians, praying together and working together where we can, that Christ’s prayer that we may all be one (cf. John 17: 21) will come about.
