A prayer cell has developed under the patronage of St Catherine of Siena. The cell will meet weekly on Thursday to read  the Gospel for the following Sunday in a method called Lectio Divina, a quiet and shared way of  looking at what the Lord is saying to us individually through the words of the Bible.

St. Peter’s also has a Cell for members of the Society of Our Lady of Walsingham. It meets for Mass and other Marian devotions. Times will be posted here and under the Walsingham and Events pages.

**Further we are hoping to begin a group who will pray the Rosary together in each other’s homes once a month. The Rosary has been  described as the Gospel in beads-going through the major events of the life of Jesus.

Our ALPHA will be repeated in the autumn of 2016, following a successful time from October to December 2015.

Our hope is to increase our social calendar with trips to theatre, breweries etc.

The Mission Society of St Wilfred & St Hilda was launched at St. Peter’s Crabbs Cross Redditch by Bishop Jonathan Baker SSC, at the time bishop of Ebbsfleet. The Society’s aims and constitution can be read on its own website . Bishop Jonathan came to inaugurate the Society for the Region of the Marches-the dioceses of Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester- before he moves to a new post as Bishop of Fulham in the diocese of London. Since the Society is episcopally led, by the 14 Catholic bishops, it seemed important that it be inaugurated before a new bishop is appointed to Ebbsfleet, so that the interregnum should have a solid base in these border dioceses.
