Peterborough parish hosts week of mission

The parish of Sacred Heart and St Oswald, Peterborough, hosted a week’s mission by a highly experienced team from the Sion Community in late May.

The Sion team, who are based in Brentwood, are committed to mission and evangelisation.

Parishioner Timothy Fox, who took part, said: “The Coming Together that we are One Mission, from May 21 to 29, was a special blessing for the life of our parish, a great opportunity to slow down and look prayerfully at the way we are living individually and with those around us.

“Parish life was enhanced by the Mission providing daily Mass, visiting homes, anointing frail and unwell people, offering opportunities for confessions, prayer ministry and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.”

The team also met with First Holy Communion children and parents and the parish’s Confirmation candidates. They conducted thanksgiving services for Covid keyworkers and those who are active in the service of our church.

Musicians from the team led the singing at the services and afterwards   happily joined in conversation and coffee. 

“Members of the parish held a special meeting to discern what should be the next steps in bringing the mission’s message to fruition,” said Timothy. “The Holy Spirit will now be surely guide us in ways which will deepen our relationship with Jesus and strengthen the life of our parish.”
