A HEAVENLY GIFT – we really were blessed this past week with glorious sunshine and blue skies and Mossley wore a large smile; it was a treat to be outdoors.

Please God, as a community, we will be generous in sharing our time with the Lord this Lent.

Fr Timothy Radcliffe writes ‘ Cardinal Hume was asked in an interview ‘What do you feel like when you pray?’ He replied: ‘Oh I just keep plugging away. At its best it’s like being in a dark room with someone you love. You can’t see them, but you know they’re there.
