St Chad’s Parish Prayer

Thank you Loving Father, for having created us and given us to each other in our parish family.

Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows and for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness.

Thank you for yesterday, today and tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for our priests, our friends, for health and for grace.

May we live this and every day conscious of Your mercy and all that has been given to us . Amen

Magister Adest Et Vocat Te

Above the door of our church, you will read the words, Magister Adest Et Vocat Te which means, The Master is Here and He is Calling You.

In answering the call and entering our church you will be generously welcomed by the priests and people of the parish.

Our Patron St Chad

Our Patron St Chad, inspires us by his courage, his humility and his passionate desire to share the Good News of the Gospel with as many people as he could. We seek to follow in his footsteps through prayer, worship and outreach, which are all at the heart of our parish.

You are most welcome to join us.
