Leaving Mass – Fr Don Bosco Gunturu

Fr Don Bosco Gunturu came to England from India for the first time in October 2021 and became the Assistant Priest at Our Lady Help of Christians. A very humble man and much liked, so it was with sadness that Parishioners learned that he was needed and would be moving immediately to a parish in Buckingham in July 2022. Fr Don Bosco celebrated his last Mass at Our Lady’s on Friday 15th July 2022 which was followed by afternoon tea in

Sisters of St Clare Thanksgiving Mass

In early March it was announced that Sisters Antoinette and Kathleen would be withdrawing from their current ministries and returning to Ireland after serving Luton and the surrounding area for nearly 50 years. Initially in 1976 their ministry was in Catholic education and in particular in St Margaret of Scotland’s Infant and Junior Schools. Their ministries then evolved into homeless and marginalized, divorced and separated, the sick, dying and bereaved. In 1996 their move to Abigail Close afforded the opportunity to

Act of Prayer and Witness outside the Luton and Dunstable Hospital

Every other month, Catholics from different parishes join together to pray for the sanctity of human life outside the Luton and Dunstable Hospital. Those present offer a practical alternative to women seeking an abortion and the possibility of a lifetime of mental health problems to the child’s parents, if they go ahead with an abortion. These prayer vigils not only provide an opportunity to pray for the sanctity of life and for a change of culture to embrace the sanctity of

Divine Mercy Sunday – 2022

Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a simple, uneducated young Polish nun (St Faustina) received a special call. Jesus told her, “I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. The message of Mercy is that God loves us, all of us, no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognise that His mercy is greater than our sins so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy and

Fr Dariusz Bialowas celebrates fourteen years at Our Lady’s

In February, Father Dariusz announced that he would be leaving Our Lady Help of Christians on Divine Mercy Sunday and moving on to pastures new, following a long and much deserved sabbatical. After receiving 14 years of wonderful and faithful service at Our Lady’s, parishioners were not going to allow this to happen without marking the occasion with a bang. A Thanksgiving Mass was held on Friday 22nd April followed by a celebratory party in the parish hall. Thanksgiving and Celebrations
