Jesus stood out as a teacher because he taught with authority and power.
In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus demonstrates this through the amazing healing of the man in the synagogue.
This activity sheet includes the Gospel reading, reflection and activities for you to do on your own or as a family!

The Feast Day of Blessed Cyprian Tansi

Blessed Cyprian Tansi has a special connection to our diocese as he moved from his native Nigeria to learn about life as a monk at Mount Saint Bernard monastery in Leicestershire.

Blessed Cyprian said: "If you are going to be a Christian at all, you might as well live entirely for God."

Walking for Water for CAFOD!

Join the Water Droplet Trail in support of CAFOD’s walk for water appeal. You can get involved at home by creating a water droplet display in a window, and looking out for others on a walk.

Watch the following video for more information:

How do we join the Water Droplet Trail?
Fill in the attached water droplet or draw and decorate your own! Don't forget to include 'I'm walking for water with CAFOD'.
Put your water droplet in a window that can be seen from outside your building.
When you go out for a walk in the area, look out for other people displaying the CAFOD water droplet! How many can you find?

Every time you spot one of the CAFOD water droplets displayed in windows around your community, think of people like Abdul and Mohammed in Ethiopia. The steps you take on your walk could help communities like theirs have access to clean water.

Happy Walking!

Christian Meditation


How do I meditate?

  • Sit down.  Sit still and upright.  Close your eyes lightly.  Sit relaxed but alert.  Breathe calmly and regularly.

  • You could listen to one of the songs below to guide you through a 1,2 or 3 minute meditation.

  • It is recommended that you use the prayer-phrase MA-RA-NA-THA.  Recite it as four syllables of equal length.  Listen to it as you say it, gently but continuously.

  • Do not think or imagine anything - spiritual or otherwise.  If thoughts and images come, these are distractions at the time of meditation, try to put them out of your mind and focus on your breathing
