Seek Justice, says the Lord …

We are like fig trees – we too need to be fruitful in life!  The ancient Christians believed that every Mass was a fruitful victory for the Kingdom...


Bishop’s Visitation

Silent Adoration at Kirkby Lonsdale @ St Joseph's Church
Mar 24 @ 8:30 am – 9:00 am

Come and join us for silent prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

This is an opportunity for a short period of silent prayer in the presence of Jesus onour altars in the Blessed Sacrament. You may wish to think about the following; it may be of help:

Being present seeking enlightenment: use the Mass sheet to mull over slowly the readings and ask God what He is seeking to say to you.

Being present expressing need: bring to your minds and hearts those persons or situations which are dear to you; hold them before Jesus present on the altar; “lay them at His feet” expressing your need.

Being present in silence: simply “be there” in silence and enter into the moment of sharing a place and a time with Jesus, who gradually enters into your time and place.
