RED BOX MONEY – for the last quarter – £421.10 – many thanks – Sue Glynn.
ENJOYABLE EVENING – parishioners enjoyed the visit to see Cats – and having transport door to door, it is still cheaper than watching United & City!
We will collect the money for ‘Wicked’ next month.
LET THERE BE LIGHT – the new lights should be installed this weekend and, hopefully, they will be an improvement on the old ones.
PLASTERED – not the parish priest, but the walls in the parish room have been plastered this past week. When they dry out they can be painted; a carpet has been ordered and we have yet to order tables and chairs. Wine glasses and cups and saucers have been purchased so we are almost ready to start partying. We will give the date of our next parish lunch next week.
EASTER WATER – the piety stall has some holy water bottles for the Easter Water and a new selection of cards.
FOOD ITEMS – left in the presbytery porch have been handed out. Thanks.
JOSEPHIAN – PARISH MAGAZINE – a reminder from the editor that items for the June edition can be sent any time – firstname.lastname@example.org – handwritten and typed copies can be left at the presbytery. Comments on the last (first) publication would be welcomed.
RABBINIC SAYING ‘ when a person arrrives in the world as a baby his hands are clenched as though to say, everything is mine. I will inherit it all. When he departs from the world, his hands are open, as though to say, I have acquired nothing from the world.’
CURATE’S EGG – Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet; the sun peeps ever so shyly through the clouds. Perhaps it doesn’t want to frighten us. It is warming up though and the rain is sweeter. Parishioners are beginning to spread their wings and heading for the airports and seaports. Perhaps people in Florida are saying ‘ Let’s go to Mossley this year for our summer holidays, it seems to have everything anyone could possibly want.’!
