What name do we give Jesus?
Our Lord? Our Saviour? Teacher?
This Sunday’s Gospel taken from the Gospel of Luke (9:18-24) shows us Jesus Christ asking this question and pointing forward to His act of love on the cross, to ‘suffer grievously’.
Join us this Sunday for our main act of worship at 10am.
This Sunday, we welcome you to our fantastic BBQ as we enter the jolly month of June and celebrate Corpus Christi here in sunny MK!
All proceeds will be going to an excellent cause: raising funds for the youth pilgrimage to Walsingham this year.
So, have some wonderful BBQ meat, some delicious Pimm’s, and support us and our youth by helping us bring the wonderous experience of Walsingham into the hearts of the youth of our parish.
This event will be after the main Parish Mass of 10am, so join us in a fellowship lunch for a good cause!

This Sunday we celebrate the baptism of Jesus Christ.
Come join us as we remember this marvelous moment in the life of Our Lord in our Parish Mass at 9.30am followed by refreshments in the church hall (next door).
When Thou, O Lord, wast baptized in the Jordan, worship of the Trinity wast made manifest; for the voice of the Father bore witness to Thee, calling Thee His beloved Son. And the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the truth of His word. O Christ our God, Who hath appeared and enlightened the world, glory to Thee. – Troparion for the Baptism of Christ (Theophany).
Now that we have entered the new year, let us, as those wise men of the east, lay our gifts before the Lord our God.
Driven by the sign of a star, those three persons, gentiles to Israel, came to pay homage to one worthy of praise.
As people of God, each unique in our selves, let us bring into this new year an affirmation of our talents and gifts whatever they may be, from sewing to state economics. May we offer our gifts in joyful thanks to the Lord who does create and embraces us in His loving kindness.
What can I give him
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb;
If I were a wise man
I would do my part;
Yet what I can give him –
Give my heart.
– Christina Rosetti (1830-94) ‘In the Bleak Mid-Winter’

They shall grow not old
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
From Laurence Binyon’s poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
