Gratitude!

Fr. Mark’s Silver Jubilee….

“I just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to all my parishioners, family and friends who sent greeting cards, money and gifts on the occasion of my Silver Jubilee. They are a sign of your deep expression of love and kindness. The day itself was tremendously joyful, although tinged with sadness as I remembered my late Mother, the deceased Parish Priests and friends I have lost over the years. I want to especially thank my Dad, Douglas, for living with me and for his support and kindness over all these years; I am so fortunate to have him. Being a Priest has enabled me to meet so many wonderful people and to have visited many places. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life; please continue to pray for me as I will continue to pray for you.”

 

 

Unite against coronavirus

As we cope with coronavirus in the UK, we think of our sisters and brothers in developing countries who are facing this pandemic with fragile health systems, some of which have almost no intensive care beds or ventilators.
Food prices have already risen with borders closing, the poorest are losing their jobs and income with wholesale shutdowns. Furthermore, inadequate healthcare, lack of access to washing facilities and limited ability to social distance will result in loss of life on an intolerable scale. The likely impact will be devastating.
we are one global family. Please will you sign the CAFOD petition to ask the government to work with other world leaders to help the most vulnerable people in our world cope with this crisis?

Bible Journalling

Here’s an article by the Bible Society on how to start Bible journalling
