Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
A man ran up to Jesus, knelt before him and put this question to him, ‘Good master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus said to him, You know the commandments: You must not kill; You must not commit adultery; You must not steal; You must not bring false witness; You must not defraud; Honour your father and mother.’ And he said to him, ‘Master, I have kept all these from my earliest days.’ Jesus looked steadily at him and loved him, and he said, ‘There is one thing you lack. Go and sell everything you own and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’ But his face fell at these words and he went away sad, for he was a man of great wealth.
Jesus looked round and said to his disciples, ‘How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!’ It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.’ The apostles were astonished . ‘In that case’ they said to one another ‘who can be saved?’ Jesus gazed at them. ‘For men’ he said ‘it is impossible, but not for God: because everything is possible for God.’

Thinking of becoming a Catholic or of renewing your faith?
Whether you are a non Christian or a non Catholic, if you wish to learn about the Catholic Faith you are most welcome to attend our sessions "Journey in Faith" which started at the beginning of October. Now is the time to give serious thought to this should you wish to find out if the Catholic Faith is for you or if you wish to return to the Faith and deepen your knowledge and understanding.
The Journey in Faith course takes place on each Monday at 7.30 p.m. in the Parish Centre and continues weekly until Easter. The next course begins on Monday 14th October.
If you wish for further information or have a positive interest in becoming a Catholic please contact Fr Graham or John Lally. For more information see also the page on this website How do I become a Catholic?
