Praying and Working for God and Each Other in Our Parish and Community:
Responding to God's Love at The Immaculate Conception of Our Lady - part of the Christian Community in Peacehaven
The following may just seem like the usual list of tasks that happen in all churches to one degree or another. Let me invite you to look at them in a different way: every person behind these pieces of information offers them as a service to you, personally, and in thanksgiving to God for His love for each of us.
As we are made in the image of God, then we are called to be as He is: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; united. Our Father is the creator and we reflect this through ongoing renewal, prayer, liturgy, making the house of God fitting for His worship, and creating peace in our lives and the world around us. In the image of the Son, we proclaim God's word to those we meet and we act as servant to each other and our neighbour, bringing healing, love and hope. The Holy Spirit is the love that binds Father and Son together. It is the Holy Spirit within us that empowers us to reach out joyfully to others in love, enabling us to serve each other even when we feel hurt, tired or overwhelmed.
To those of you who do all this on our behalf - a heartfelt thank you. For those who seek help, please use the phone numbers to receive support from your parish family. For those of you who wish to join us or who are unsure of your place in our parish - use the information to explore further your response to God's love. Most of all, please pray for us all, that the work of our Church leads to the glory of God. Without Him, our efforts are limited; with Him, we have endless opportunities.
