All are welcome in our parishes and to participate fully in community life. Registration forms are available at the vicarage or use the form at the bottom of our parish bulletin for information on registration. – Our Mission – It combines tradition and is based on the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ; we are the Catholic Community of St. Clare in Essex. As a parish family we accept the call of Jesus to serve one another. We believe that creation is good and God uses the building to use for their purposes then it has been affected by original sin as the result of the sin of the first humans. Catholic theologians (and Orthodox) have never agreed on a particular interpretation of the creation story in Genesis. A small number of early Christians read literally allegorically and others in the light of science of the time. Some people read all three networks simultaneously. Catholics can interpret Genesis in a non-literal form provided that the interpretation is faithful to the teachings of the Church. So Catholics are free to understand the true meaning of Genesis the word but also to read the book of Genesis in the light of modern scientific observations until certain conditions are met. For example: Catholics believe that God created the world out of nothing (ex nihilo) creating the world by his Word who became man in Jesus Christ. In Interpretation of Genesis in the light of the clash of scientific observations Christians whose churches have been in discussions of the modernists of the 19th and 20th century founded. Surprisingly there is a very literal understanding of Genesis and is really a very modern approach.
