OUR PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
We, as members of Holy Ghost Parish, are a community united in our faith and strengthened through prayer, worship and service. We accept our call from God to work together,to serve all with justice, peace and love in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
HOLY GHOST PARISH [we should but will never be known by the name of Holy Spirit!]
Is a lively enthusiastic Catholic community which gathers together people from across the town and beyond. Our people come from all over the globe. At its founding in 1965 the congregation was mainly English, Irish, Caribbean and Italian. Those families still form a great part of the community enriched by many others especially from Kenya and other parts of Africa, Pakistan and India, and elsewhere. We host mass for the Polish community each week, and monthly for the Syro Malankara and Syro Malabar Rites from India. Together we celebrate the Eucharist each Sunday and throughout the week. Strengthened by Christ we try to live the life of the gospel in service to God and the world.
Our bells [dedicated to St Laurence O’Toole] ring out to call people to worship and ring for the Angelus at noon and 6pm each day.
DEANERY and DIOCESE
As a parish we are part of the LUTON and DUNSTABLE DEANERY, which works through its Pastoral Area Council to coordinate the life of our parishes. We belong to the CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF NORTHAMPTON, and look to our Bishop, Right Reverend David James Oakley as our father in Christ.
We work together with other Christian Churches especially in the Bury Park Beech Hill Council of Churches which comprises All Saints and St Peter’s Anglican Churches, Beech Hill and Oakdale Methodist Churches, and Bury Park United Reformed Churches. Father Kevin is a member of the town “Deans’ Group” which includes Anglican, Methodist and Free Church representation, and as such he is a member of Churches Together in Luton Executive.
Father Kevin and others work with Luton Council of Faiths and the Grassroots organisation to develop relationships with the many other faiths represented in Luton.
