The Lord’s Day weekly newsletter is part of our sharing and is offered as a free download for duplicating and sharing within parish communities.
The newsletter began a number of years ago when Father John was asked to put on paper the insights he shares at the regular retreats he preaches. He wrote a weekly reference guide for the Sunday readings at Mass and, as we worked on a page design, it was decided to offer these as a weekly newsletter - sharing a living faith from parish and apostolate experience.
The Questions of Faith section comes from our regular parish “Questions of Faith” discussion group; People of God may be the living saints who have shared the journey with us or the people who have inspired us; the weekly message is summed up through the Theme and the This Week activity; and, of course, no Watermead venture is complete without the “Little Saints” who add their humour and heart through the Wisdom from the Saints cartoon.
We know that downloading The Lord’s Day offers people various options. Readers have told us that they find it useful to their Sunday Mass preparation and we know that parishes download and reproduce it for their congregations – with some using it as part of their own parish newsletter. However people choose to share the newsletter is fine with us - we are just pleased to be able to serve the wider Church community.
