Mission Statement
Inspired by the Beloved disciple,
Saint John the Apostle,
Our parish at Kippax is committed
‘to be on earth the Heart of God.’
We, the Parish Pastoral Council, will play our part
in continuing to develop a parish community
in which we ‘harness for God the energies of love.’
We will nurture a community that is to be
Inclusive and
We recognise that each member of the parish
has unique gifts and invite them to offer these gifts
for the enrichment of the community.
We will be sensitive to where people are in their lives
and respectful of their freedom and readiness
to contribute to the life of the parish.


The Word,
coming from the Heart of his Father

made the world emerge from nothing;
and from the Heart of the incarnate Word pierced on Calvary
I see a new world emerging,
the world of those he has chosen.
And this creation, so fertile, full of grandeur
and inspired by love and mercy, is the Church,
the mystical body of Christ,
which makes this new creation present
on earth until the end of time.  


Jules Chevalier 1900
