Welcome to our parish website

ste-fr-tony-370x370

I am very pleased to welcome you to our parish and I hope our website will give you some idea of our life and activities.

We are a very mixed community of Catholics from numerous cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Some of our parishioners have lived here for many years, others have joined us more recently from other parts of the world, indeed from every continent.

Golders Green itself is home to a large Jewish community, and we have a close and growing relationship with our local synagogue.

It is also a multi-faith area and our parish is very involved in Churches Together and Inter Faith Groups.

You are very welcome to join us at any of our Masses and services. If you are here for the first time do come and introduce yourself to either myself, the parish priest (I am usually in the porch before and after each Sunday Mass so that parishioners can make easy contact with me), or the parish Deacon who is present at the Saturday evening, and Sunday morning Masses. We will be delighted to meet you. Our coffee morning in the hall after the 10.30 am Sunday Mass, provides a great opportunity for you to meet other parishioners.

If you are new to the parish, you may like to register your details by way of our parish registration form.

This Sunday's Reflection

5 December 2021                     Second Sunday of Advent Year C

 BACK TO THE FUTURE

 

If “things ain’t what they used to be”, then Christianity makes no bones about proclaiming that one day they surely will be once more. For in Advent we walk in the shadow of a wonderful promise, that one day the rule of God will hold sway over all creation and life will be restored to that perfect balance that God intended us to have from the beginning. That’s why Advent carries with it a tremendous sense of yearning and longing. We look back to the initial peace and tranquillity of God’s creation (as symbolised in the story of the Garden of Eden) and we remember the coming of the Messiah in Bethlehem with the powerful promise of a kingdom where the meek and the humble shall rule.

But Advent is not locked in the past. It’s about now. We look around at ourselves and at our world and ask whether we can play a more active role in establishing the justice of God’s kingdom in our lives, on our street, in our family, in the place where we work. For Advent is also about change, changing ourselves and our world, and it beckons us to be renewed.

And like all feasts and seasons Advent has a future dimension to it. We look forward, beyond the Christmas scene, to the coming of Christ as he takes possession of this world once more and subjects all creation to the rule of God. None of us knows how or when this will happen, but Christians eagerly await the blessing that God’s coming again will bring.

Advent asks of us that we never lose sight of what God has offered us in Christ. It demands a rebuilding programme in our lives as we straighten our ways and smooth our roads for God. And it invites us to watch joyfully for the day, that day when the salvation promised us will be ours, when Christ will come again in his glory.
