Welcome to the Catholic Church of St. Patrick's in Duston
Welcome to our website. We hope you will use it to keep up with Parish news, upcoming events and service times and as a general source of information about our parish community.
Dear brothers and sisters,
I wish you all a prayerful Maundy Thursday. And congratulations for being and sharing in the priesthood of Christ as believers.
We pray very specially for the speedy recovery of those who suffer from poor health and illness. May the Lord bless them with good health.
On this most Holy day we remember, recall and celebrate three important gifts of Christ at the last Supper.
1. Institution of the Eucharist: By the Eucharistic sharing of Christ, the whole humanity is united with God. God lives in us and
we live in God. The desired out come of the Eucharist should enable us to live out the brotherhood of humanity in Christ. We are made brothers and sisters in Christ.
2. Due to that same reason Jesus Christ promulgated the commandment of love: "love one another as I have love you."A life of love is the most natural fruit of the Eucharist, the Sacrament of love.
3. The Institution of the Ministerial Priesthood.
Also,St Peter reminds us that every believer shares in the royal priesthood of Christ: "We are a holy nation, chosen race and a royal priesthood".
We are made sharers in the priesthood of Christ to live out the commandment of love in the service of the humanity.
Therefore, in Jesus, we are a sacrifice of love to one another.
Wish you God's blessings.
United in love and prayers
