PENTECOST AT ST JOHN ON BETHNAL GREEN, 10am, Sunday 5 June 2022

It is derived from the Jewish Festival of Weeks – a celebration of the harvest. The growth of the disciples from the frightened group huddling in the Upper Room after Jesus’ arrest, to the confident Apostles ready to go out across the known world preaching Jesus’ message of divine love represents that first harvest for the Church. Come and join with us celebrating this festival with a...

Ascension Day

Mass for the Festival of the Ascension Thursday 26th May, 7pm “Jesus hasn’t just gone away.  He has gone deeper into the heart of reality – our reality and God’s.  He has become far more than a visible friend and companion; he has shown himself to be the very centre of our life, the source of our loving energy in the world and the source of our prayerful, trustful waiting on God.  He has made us able to be a new kind of human being, silently and patiently trusting God as a loving parent, actively and hopefully at work to make a...
