PARISH LUNCH – the next parish lunch, because of people being away, will be on Thursday 23rd May and will be in the new parish room.
PARISH ROOM – the room is now painted, the radiators have been fitted and the light fittings put back, and, hopefully, the carpet will be delivered on Monday. There is every chance that next Sunday coffee and tea after Mass will be in the parish room (if the tables and chairs arrive in time).
DARLING BUDS OF MAY – hard to believe that May is upon us. Katherine Mansfied, the author, after a train journey from Paddington to Cornwall, wrote ‘I have never seen anything more solemn and splendid than England in May.’ It is perhaps the loveliest of months when everything is at its freshest and best. However, the biting wind is persisting and the landscape still has a lenten aspect. We might soon be complaining of the heat! The ground has been really parched so I expect the gardeners have welcomed the showers. Yvonne gave the church grass its first cut last week and John the presbytery grass its first cut.
RED BOXES – Fr Klaver wrote to say that he really enjoyed the Masses last weekend and that he was ever so pleased with the response to his appeal. 27 more parishioners took on a box. LATELY DEAD- Peter Jackson – former headmaster at St Damian’s High School. May he rest in peace.
