And the Catholic Faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity
Hamilton Main Window

The Great East Window of St Peters Hamilton has three panels depicting the Incarnation, Crucifixion and the Ascension of the Risen Christ. It is a truly beautiful window, and focuses our attention on these three moments central to God's plan for the redemption of the world.


Faith and Mission

Possibly one of the great Bible verses about Faith is

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."
Hebrews 11:1.

For us faith implies following the teaching of Jesus, and in that is the hope in things to come. Faith for us represents trust or reliance, not simply to believe something, but to be prepared to trust that belief. There is a tension between faith as a decision made in free will and faith as a gift from God.

Faith does not a need us to abandon intellect and reason that we also see as gifts of God. Faith is an extension to those things, that gets to places not against reason - but beyond reason. We also use the word Faith as a proper noun and talk about the Faith, which refers to the inherited tradition and body of belief and practice.
