St Dominic's Catholic Church
Welcome to the website for Saint Dominic's Catholic Church, Downham Market.
Fr Erico Falcão and his parishioners welcome you to our church and community.
The Church of St. Dominic at Downham Market is a small church, but one where visitors and new parishioners are assured a warm welcome. Our parish community endeavours to live out the Commandments of Jesus that we should love God and love one another. Our main work is the worship of God through the liturgy of the Church, and we seek to accomplish this with simplicity, dignity and reverence. There is an emphasis on the teaching of the faith, and it's implications for our daily lives. As a Catholic Parish we seek to manifest the love, joy and peace which God the Holy Spirit wishes to bestow upon us.
These words were written by Father Edmund Eggleston in a welcome booklet to the Parish. They are as true today as they were when he wrote them in 2004
FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
“Before Christ’s Second Coming, the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies our pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men and women an apparent solution to their problems, at the price of apostasy from the Truth. The supreme religious deception is that of Antichrist, or pseudo-messianism, by which man glorifies himself in place of GOD, and of His Messiah come in the Flesh.” Catechism of the Catholic Church 675.
