SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to have you in my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally come, at least, spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as having already come and I unite myself and entirely to you. Never let me be separated from you.

Update from St Vincent's Parish
The SVP provides social, practical, spiritual and financial support to the parishioners of St Vincent's, Crookes, and to pupils and parents at two local schools. Our day-to-day ministry ranges from: regular telephone chats and home visits to isolated and elderly parishioners; delivering food parcels and essential equipment to families in need; responding to ad-hoc requests for transport to Sunday Mass and key appointments; and other miscellaneous activities, such as helping with a house move or a bit of shopping. In addition, we play an active part in: the development of a Vincentian spirit amongst youngsters in our school communities at St Marie's and Notre Dame; diocesan efforts to resettle a refugee family; and the support of an SVP society in a developing country.
This update is meant to inform parishioners of just some of the good works going on in Saint Vincent's Parish. Ideally, it will encourage anyone who feels they could benefit from for any of the services described above to get in touch with us. One thing we can promise is that we will try to help you in the best way possible. We hope that it will also interest men and women of all ages in the parish to contact us to find out more about joining the Society. Please note: the varied nature of the work means all skills and interests can be accommodated, and the time commitment is very flexible.
To find out more, or to request assistance, please contact Pete Delamere on 07956 092975. All calls will be treated in the strictest confidence

This is a street artists view of the New 'state of the art' St Vincent's Mission Hub at Solly Street. It houses the University Chaplaincy and is also used as a Diocesan outreach Centre for youth evangelisation. It even boasts of a chic Italian Cafe serving an array of coffees and tasty light bites. It originally was the Victorian boys school which was opened in the 1860's shortly after the Vincentian Order arrived in the city to establish the parish. Mass is once more being said in it's original habitat of Solly Street after a lapse of twenty-four years. Long may it remain that way. The place is utterly transformed. Covid, of course has restricted activities at the venue but gradually things are being normalised. Fr Paddy
