Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
Third Sunday of Advent Year A
John in his prison had heard what Christ was doing and he sent his disciples to ask him, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or have we got to wait for someone else?’ Jesus answered, ‘Go back and tell John what you hear and see; the blind see again, and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised to life and the Good News is proclaimed to the poor; and happy is the man who does not lose faith in me.’
As the messengers were leaving, Jesus began to talk to the people about John: ‘What did you go out into the wilderness to see? ... To see a prophet? Yes, I tell you, and much more than a prophet: he is the one of whom scripture says:
‘Look, I am going to send my messenger before you;
he will prepare your way before you.
‘I tell you solemnly, of all the children born of women, a greater than John the Baptist has never been seen; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he is.’

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 starts in 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 from October until Easter.
