Unserer Lieben Frau Stern des Meeres ist die östlichste römisch-katholische Kirche in England und befindet sich in der Stadt Lowestoft, Suffolk in der Diözese East Anglia. Alle sind bei unseren regelmäßigen Messen und während der Öffnungszeiten der Kirche herzlich willkommen, um ruhig zu beten und nachzudenken.

Unsere Mission ist es, denen zu dienen, die den katholischen Glauben teilen und andere auf eine Weise erreichen, die ihr Interesse und Verständnis für das Christentum fördert und entwickelt. Wir sind gesegnet, eine blühende wöchentliche Gemeinde von rund 400 Gemeindemitgliedern zu haben, die sich aus verschiedenen Nationalitäten zusammensetzen, darunter Englisch, Irisch, Polnisch, Portugiesisch, Spanisch, Sri Lanka und Indisch.

Massen

Masse an ist unsere Dame sagte täglich während der Woche und zweimal am Wochenende ( die gerade online ist nur bei present_. Bitte sehen Masse mal für weitere Details. Messe wird auch gesagt , jeden Sonntag und einmal in der Woche in der St. Nikolaus - Kapelle der Leichtigkeit in Pakefield (derzeit keine Messen). Die Sonntagsmessen werden normalerweise gesungen, entweder von der Orgel oder der Instrumentalgruppe geleitet ( weitere Informationen zum Musikdienst der Kirche finden Sie auf der Musikseite).

Gruppen

Innerhalb der Kirche gibt es mehrere aktive Gruppen: Ritter von St. Columba, Katholische Frauenliga , Kinderliturgiegruppe, Stella Maris Kleinkindergruppe, Erwachsenenforscher und Gebetsgruppe. Mitglieder der Kirche helfen auch beim Sammeln und Liefern von Gegenständen für die örtliche Lebensmittelbank.

Geschichte

Das moderne katholische Leben begann 1867 in Lowestoft mit einer Jesuitenmission. Die Gemeinde wurde 1881 gegründet. Die Messen wurden zunächst in einem Fischernetz-Loft gefeiert, aber dank Spenden und Spenden war es 1899 möglich, mit dem Bau der heutigen Kirche zu beginnen. Die Türen zu Unserer Lieben Frau wurden im Juni 1902 für die Öffentlichkeit geöffnet.

Unserer Lieben Frau wird von vielen als die schönste katholische Kirche in Suffolk angesehen und enthält einige der besten Beispiele für einen zurückhaltenden Dekorationsstil „Kunsthandwerk“. Es ist ein denkmalgeschütztes Gebäude, hat aber während des Zweiten Weltkriegs leider einige Bombenschäden erlitten.

Die St.-Nikolaus-Kirche, die ebenfalls Teil der Pfarrei ist, wurde ursprünglich als Kongregationskirche erbaut und in den 1990er Jahren gekauft, um eine ehemalige Billardhalle zu ersetzen, die seit 1955 als Kapelle der Leichtigkeit genutzt wurde. Dieses Gebäude ist auch in der Kunst und Handwerksstil, die Arbeit der gleichen Architekten Unserer Lieben Frau: Baines und Richards.

STATIONEN DES KREUZES

First Station: Jesus is condemned to death.
First Station: Jesus is condemned to death.

Jesus stands in the most human of places. He has already experienced profound solidarity with so many on this earth, by being beaten and tortured. Pilate washes his hands of the whole affair. Jesus' hands are tied behind his back. Now he is wrongfully condemned to punishment by death. His commitment to entering our lives completely begins its final steps. He has said "yes" to God and placed his life in God's hands. We follow him in this final surrender.

Second Station: Jesus carries the Cross.
Second Station: Jesus carries the Cross.

Jesus is made to carry the cross on which he will die. It represents the weight of all our crosses. What he must have felt as he first took it upon his shoulders! With each step he enters more deeply into our human experience. He walks in the path of human misery and suffering, and experiences its crushing weight. Let us remember the times when he had to carry our cross in the form of sin, sickness, pain, worry, despair, loneliness, guilt, loss of loved ones, financial problems and so on.

Third Station: Jesus falls the first time.
Third Station: Jesus falls the first time.

The weight is unbearable. Jesus falls under it. How could he enter our lives completely without surrendering to the crushing weight of the life of so many on this earth! He lays on the ground and knows the experience of weakness beneath unfair burdens. He feels the powerlessness of wondering if he will ever be able to continue. He is pulled up and made to continue. Let us remember the first time when we gave into temptation and sinned. We fell into sin and moved away from God.

Fourth Station: Jesus meets his mother.
Fourth Station: Jesus meets his mother.

Jesus' path takes him to a powerful source of his strength to continue. All his life, his mother had taught him the meaning of the words, "Behold, the handmaid of the Lord". Now they look into each other's eyes. How pierced-through her heart must be! She knows the sorrow in every mother's heart, who has lost a child to tragedy or violence. Mother Mary can intercede for us and obtain all graces we need in our lives. Let Mother Mary be our comfort and strength during this earthly journey.

Fifth Station: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry his cross.
Fifth Station: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry his cross.

There can be little doubt that Simon must have been less than pleased to that he was forced to help carry the cross. When we were burdened with our cross, when the cross was too heavy for us to carry, Jesus would have sent someone into our lives to help us carry the cross. It may have been your spouse, your parents, your children, your friends or even a stranger. Jesus would never abandon us. Let us thank Jesus for all those people who gave us hope.

Sixth Station: Veronica wipes the face of Jesus.
Sixth Station: Veronica wipes the face of Jesus.

Jesus' journey is at times brutal. He has entered into the terrible experiences of rejection and injustice. He has been whipped and beaten. His face shows the signs of his solidarity with all who have ever suffered injustice and vile, abusive treatment. He encounters a compassionate, loving disciple who wipes the vulgar spit and mocking blood from his face. She saw him as a brother in need. Let us remember our family members and friends who were there to comfort us during the most painful times.

Seventh Station: Jesus falls for the second time.
Seventh Station: Jesus falls for the second time.

Even with help, Jesus stumbles and falls to the ground. In deep exhaustion he stares at the earth beneath him. "Remember, you are dust and to dust you will return". He has seen death before. Now he can feel the profound weakness of disability and disease and aging itself, there on his knees, under the weight of his cross. Let us surrender our hearts to the Lord and be truly repentant and sorry. Let us strive not to keep committing the same sins over and over.

Eighth Station: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem.
Eighth Station: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem.

The women of Jerusalem, and their children, come out to comfort and thank him. They had seen his compassion and welcomed his words of healing and freedom. He had broken all kinds of social and religious conventions to connect with them. Now they are here to support him. Let us be compassionate and merciful to the people around us. Let us open our eyes to the people suffering in this world.

Ninth Station: Jesus falls the third time.
Ninth Station: Jesus falls the third time.

This last fall is devastating. Jesus can barely proceed to the end. Summoning all this remaining strength supported by his inner trust n God, Jesus collapses under the weight of the cross. His executioners look at him as a broken man, pathetic yet paying a price he deserves. They help him up so he can make it up the hill of crucifixion. Lord Jesus you persevered to the end. Help us to persevere in our efforts to conquer human weaknesses with your grace.

Tenth Station: Jesus is stripped of his clothes.
Tenth Station: Jesus is stripped of his clothes.

Part of the indignity is to be crucified naked. Jesus is completely stripped of any pride. The wounds on his back are torn open again. He experiences the ultimate vulnerability of the defenceless. No shield or security protects him. As they stare at him, his eyes turn to heaven. Surrender all those moments in your life which you wish had never ever happened and want to forget forever.

Eleventh Station: Jesus is nailed to the Cross.
Eleventh Station: Jesus is nailed to the Cross.

Huge nails are hammered through his hands and feet to fix him on the cross. He is bleeding much more seriously now. As the cross is lifted up, the weight of his life hangs on those nails. Every time he struggles to pull himself up to breathe, his ability to cling to life slips away. Let all our sins be nailed to the cross so that we can live a new life in Jesus.

Twelfth Station: Jesus dies on the Cross.
Twelfth Station: Jesus dies on the Cross.

Between two criminals, a mocking title above his head, with only Mary and John and Mary Magdalene to support him, Jesus surrenders his last breath: "Into your hands I commend my spirit". I stand there, at the foot of the cross, side by side with all of humanity, and behold our salvation. I carefully watch and listen to all that is said.
