Our prayer for the New Year 2021 - for all of you who visit our website - is from the letter of St Paul to the Ephesians :

 "I pray that out of his glorious riches
he may strengthen you with power
through his Spirit in your inner being,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts
through faith.
And I pray that you, being rooted
and established in love,
may have power,
together with all the saints,
to grasp how wide and long and high
and deep is the love of Christ,
and to know this love
that surpasses knowledge
that you may be filled
to the measure of all the fullness
of God."

Ephesians 3:16-19

Up until 1970 the Doctors of the Church were all male. Only men were given this exceptional and solemn title for having contributed in a fundamental way to the couture and the doctrine of the Church. It was Paul VI who was the first Pontiff to give the title to two women, Catherine of Siena Teresa , giving them a leading role in our Church's tradition, culture and history; he recognizes in the Saint “infused wisdom, that is to say, lucid, profound and inebriating absorption of the divine truths and mysteries of the faith contained in the Holy Books of the Old and New Testaments”. Following the two. Therese of Lizieux were proclaimed. On 7 October, Benedict XVI will confer the same title on Hildegard of Bingen.

* Our Way of Life *


"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)



"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)



"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)



"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)



"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
