Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
Fifteenth Week in Ordinary Time Year C
The lawyer was anxious to justify himself and said to Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ Jesus replied, ‘A man was once on his way down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of brigands; they took all he had, beat him and then made off, leaving him half dead. Now a priest happened to be travelling down the same road, but when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite who came to the place saw him, and passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan traveller who came upon him was moved with compassion when he saw him. He went up and bandaged his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them. He then lifted him on to his own mount, carried him to the inn and looked after him. Next day, he took out two denarii and handed them to the innkeeper. “Look after him,” he said “and on my way back I will make good any extra expense you have.” Which of these three, do you think, proved himself a neighbour to the man who fell into the brigands‘ hands?’ ‘The one who took pity on him’ he replied. Jesus said to him, ‘Go, and do the same yourself.’

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.
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?
