Our Lady of Victories Parish
106 Main South Rd, Sockburn
"As we pray tonight, asking God’s mercy and healing for those who have been killed, and maimed, and rendered homeless, men and women are working hard and long to save lives, to heal the wounded, and to provide for the homeless. That selfless activity is a valid and reassuring reflection of the self giving love of God himself which is celebrated and nurtured when the Holy Eucharist is offered. Whether they understand it or not, those working for this disaster relief and recovery are bringing to our world the love of the Lord himself". Bishop Barry Jones
(from homily delivered at Christchurch Mass, 23rd February 2011)
