St Peter's Church Gorleston
“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”
[1 John 1:5]

Fr Anthony Nwankwo
Welcome to the parish website of the Catholic parish of St Peter the Apostle, Gorleston.
Our parish church is situated on Lowestoft Road, about 200 yards south of the town centre, a little way up the hill from the library.
We are blest to have a very beautiful church, the only one designed by Eric Gill, a famous twentieth century sculptor, it is a Grade II* listed building.
Our parish is served by Fr Anthony Nwankwo, SMMM and Fr Alexander Ibe SMMM from Nigeria and is linked with St Mary’s parish in Great Yarmouth.
I hope you can find all the information about Mass times and contact details that you need
Fr. Alexander Ibe, SMMM.
WE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR ALL WHO HAVE BEEN INFECTED ACROSS THE WORLD BY THIS VIRUS AND ALL OUR PARISHIONERS THAT WE MAY ASSIST AND SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER DURING THIS CHALLENGING TIME.
A PRAYER TO BE SAID DURING THE OUTBREAK OF COVID-19 PANDEMIC
AND TO BE GIVEN TO ALL WHO ARE SELF ISOLATING
God our Father, Creator of the world, almighty and merciful, out of love for us You sent your Son into the world as the doctor of our souls and our bodies, look upon your children who, in this difficult time of confusion and dismay in many regions of Europe and the world, turn to you seeking strength, salvation and relief, deliver us from illness and fear, heal our sick, comfort their families, give wisdom to our rulers, energy and reward to our doctors, nurses and volunteers, eternal life to the dead. Do not abandon
us in the moment of trial but deliver us from all evil.
We ask this of Thee, who with the Son and the Holy Spirit, live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.
Mary, mother of health and hope, pray for us!
AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
