Mission Statement

Posted on

We the people of St Patrick’s Church, Felling together with the parishioners of St Alban’s Church, Pelaw see ourselves as a parish family that extends an open and warm welcome to everyone. We aim to provide a secure, stimulating and loving Christian environment in which we invite others to join us in our growing awareness of God’s love and compassion for us and for everybody.

By our Catholic way of life, rooted in prayer and worship, we strive to encourage respect for moral values, the dignity of the individual and an understanding of the difficulties which modern society imposes on us all and in particular on young people.

We value the work of our schools, which enables children to grow in God’s love, developing a lively faith and learning to value and respect themselves and everyone in the community.

Together with the other churches in the area, we continue to address the spiritual and social needs of our neighbourhood.

The parish communities of St Patrick’s and St Alban’s extend to all, the hand of Christian friendship and endeavour to continue to strengthen the bond of love and friendship in our neighbourhood in the hope that everyone may find fulfilment.
