There is one Lord, one faith, one Baptism, there is one God who is Father of all.   Welcome Let us pray Ever faithful God, knowing of your love for us, we make our way through Lent. Let this be a time, as we move towards Easter, when we may become more like Christ in loving you and each other. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen   A reading from the 2nd Book of Chronicles 36: 14-16, 19-23   In those days, all the princes of Judah, the priests, and the people added infidelity to infidelity, practicing all the abominations of the nations and polluting the LORD’s temple which he had consecrated in Jerusalem. Early and often did the LORD, the God of their fathers, send his messengers to them, for he had compassion on his people and his dwelling place. But they mocked the messengers of God, despised his...

RCIA 2018

http://stmungomusic.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/introit-lent1.mp3 The annual service to welcome candidates for Baptism and those wishing for full communion with the Church took place in St. Andrew’s Cathedral on 18th February. A total of 80 people (43 catechumens and 37 candidates for full communion) were present in the cathedral with family members and friends as well as many of the priests from their parishes. The service was a warm and welcoming one. The St. Mungo Singers provided music, including Catherine Walker’s very appropriate new piece Come Now to Me, my Child, to create a meditative space as the congregation settled in place. Archbishop Tartaglia in his homily welcomed everyone to what he described as “this lovely step forward”. For the catechumens, he said it was a unique moment in their lives as they chose Christ and his church. They would complete this journey at Easter. Then it would be time to start the new journey through life. For the candidates for full communion, it was also a big step. When they would be confirmed and receive Communion at Easter, they would experience the joy of fully entering the community of the Church. These are days, said the Archbishop, when people say no-one believes and God does not act, but you (the catechumens and candidates) are the proof that this is not true; you are our good news story. The Gospel reading for the...
