Welcome to St Peter's Parish, Bromsgrove
The Jews were complaining to each other about Jesus, because he had said, ‘I am the bread that came down from heaven.’ ‘Surely this is Jesus son of Joseph’ they said. ‘We know his father and mother. How can he now say, “I have come down from heaven”?’ Jesus said in reply, ‘Stop complaining to each other.
‘No one can come to me unless he is drawn by the Father who sent me, and I will raise him up at the last day.
I tell you most solemnly,
everybody who believes has eternal life.
‘I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate the manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread that comes down from heaven,
so that a man may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give is my flesh,
for the life of the world.’

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 is scheduled for Autumn 2018.
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?
