AID TO THE CHURCH IN NEED – AN APPEAL – a speaker will be promoting the mission of the Aid to the Church in Need at the Masses this weekend.

JOHN WESLEY – an ounce of love is worth a pound of knowledge.
IN EXCELSIS – what a lovely week we have had – apart from a couple of gloomy days – and shorts and summer-wear have reappeared on Mossley’s Sunset Boulevard! The cafe culture will soon be here. Hedgehogs, dormice and tortoise, will probably delay their hibernation – one clergyman reported his retriever’s habit of digging up the tortoise and returning it back to the house!
Meanwhile Pope Francis is opening doors and windows and not a few cardinals are feeling the draught! He is, thank God, creating a new climate of dialogue in the church.
IT’S A KNOCK OUT – this Sunday 11.30- 4pm in Mossley Park. (Top)
