We, the parish of The Holy Family – Thanet, embracing the Catholic communities of Birchington and Westgate-on-Sea, in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark, take as our model The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. And so we strive to be a family in which we will pray for one another, know each other by name, value one another and care for each other.
We will welcome the stranger and be committed to the ‘option for the poor’.
We recognise that God has blessed every one of us with great and different gifts and we commit to share our gifts and our time. To take responsibility for our part of building up the Kingdom of God: Through active participation in our Parish liturgy, ministries, sacramental programmes and social activities. In the wider community through service and witness.
We ask you Lord Jesus to strengthen and deepen our love for each other, and to help us to espouse in the way we live our lives, the trust and faith of The Holy Family of Nazareth, and to bring to fruition our aspirations and efforts for the glory of God and the good of all. Amen.
