We are the parish which Includes Immaculate Conception and St. Dominic, Stone; Sacred Heart, Eccleshall; Holy Michael Archangel, Aston-by-Stone. We hope to keep you well informed during these strange times and offer some thoughts and prayers.
From 18th to 25th January 2021, the Church celebrates the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, together with Christian communities throughout the world. On Sunday 24th at 7:00pm there is to be a Praise & Prayer virtual service between the Churches of Stone. This is being held as a “Zoom” meeting and you are invited to attend. For details of how to attend this virtual service please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The real, though incomplete, communion that already exists between Catholics and other baptised Christians can and must be deepened at a number of levels simultaneously. Pope Francis has captured this in the phrase, “walking together, praying together and working together”. By sharing our Christian lives with other Christians, by praying with and for them, and by giving common witness to our Christian faith through action, we grow into the unity which is the Lord’s desire for his Church. The theme chosen for the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity this year “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit”, is based on John 15:1-17.
Loving Lord look kindly on our Christian communities that we whom one baptism has consecrated may be joined together by integrity of faith and unity in the bond of charity.
Please pray for the repose of a dear priest friend Fr. Pat Joyce who has died. He was a truly holy, humble and loving shepherd of his people. We will all miss him. Would you also include in your prayers Dennis Gibson and Eric Cooper who also died recently. May they rest in peace. Amen.
