THANK YOU TO FR ANTHONY  who has celebrated Mass with us for the last two weekends.  He will be here this week until Wednesday, when he will celebrate the Feast of the Assumption with us.  Thank you to the parishioners who offered advice on garages to help fix Fr Anthony’s car.  It was delivered back during the week in full working order!

Held every three years, this major international event brings together families from across the world to celebrate, pray and reflect upon the central importance of marriage and the family as the cornerstone of our lives, of society and of the Church.  Dublin has been chosen by Pope Francis to host this year’s World Meeting of Families from 21-26 August 2018, guided by the theme “The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World”.  For more information and resources, please visit
Yes, without the expense of going away to a Centre and staying overnight.  Sister Treza Ridge, once of Buxton Presentation Convent, will speak to us about doing this on the weekend of September 1st and 2nd, 2018.  She is offering to come (with other prayer guides) for a week beginning Sunday, 30th September.  It would involve doing some set prayers for half an hour each day at home or at work and meeting with your prayer guide for half an hour each day of that week to talk about your experience.  Put the dates of the week in your diary if you’re interested.
