Taste and See Family Mass 8th February


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 01/02/2015

You are invited to Taste and See Family Mass on Sunday 8th February 2015 at 3.30pm at the Shrine, St John Fisher’s Kearsley. The theme for this year is: “Love is our Mission. Family Fully Alive!” Last October there was an extraordinary Synod which introduced the topic of Family as the model and resource of evangelisation. In Autumn of 2015 there is to be a full Synod of the Bishops to take this topic further. How can we live our Faith in our family and what can we do to pass on the Faith through family life. When we live our mission as family, which is plain and simply the task of creating a culture of love in Christ we create  new space for many to find God in their homes. We would like to welcome you to our Family Mass at 3.30pm and afterwards we will share a meal with one another.

Taste and See Mass on Palm Sunday


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 05/04/2014

Tree of Evangelisation for Schoenstatt Hearts AfireWelcome to on Taste and See Mass on Palm Sunday, 13th April at 3.30pm

Welcome to our Taste and See Mass on Palm Sunday, 13th April at 3.30pm. Holy Mass will be at 3.30pm followed at 4.30pm by input and discussion for adults and there will be a children’s programme. At 5.30pm we will share a meal with one another and conclude our programme for 6.30pm. On entering Jerusalem Jesus won over the crowds at least fleetingly. They were not to remain steadfast for long in the face of opposition and criticism. His journey to Golgotha was to become a convincing argument of God’s love for each one of us and in the triumph of Easter he invited each of us to go out and win the World for Christ.

In the series Schoenstatt Hearts Afire Fr. Duncan is showing ways of how we can become apostles. The branches of the tree of evangelisation show three ways to evangelise. In the foliage of our tree of evangelisation, we can discover the various branches – mainly three large “branches”. These branches symbolise the different and the various styles of apostolate that we can be called to do. All three are important, and all three have their place and significance.

  • Evangelisation through Example
  • Evangelisation through Words

Schoenstatt Hearts Afire


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 19/03/2014

Welcome to the next encounter at Schoenstatt Hearts Afire: Salt, Light and Leaven

Wednesday, 26th March 7.30pm-9.00pm at the Shrine, St John Fisher’s Kearsley. Fr. Duncan will lead us in the meditation on Salt, Light and Leaven followed by time for discussion and questions and we will finish with light refreshments.

Every Christian is called today to be light, salt and leaven. However, there are still only a few Catholics who really commit themselves to evangelisation. When we speak about evangelisation we are speaking about renewing, with the face of Christ, the culture in which we live. This means, it will affect our choices and decisions, it will affect the values we hold dear, it will affect the way we live, our priorities, the things that interest us or do not interest us; and it should also affect our thoughts and our thinking; it should be the inspirational source of life and motivation for any life of faith. For this reason, it is important to evangelise not in the sense of a “superficial varnish” but really to get to the depths of today’s culture, and heal the world through the power of love.
