GOD KNOWS HIS OWN – all agreed that our excursion last Sunday was a lovely day out – though we did run into a downpour on the way home. Ladyewell was really quiet and peaceful, and a joy to be out in the Lancashire countryside. Lytham wasn’t too busy and most were happy to bask in the warm sunshine. One parishioner enjoyed a chat with Bobby of Cannon and Ball fame as he was watering his garden. The fish and chips were great!

ST ANTHONY OF PADUA PRAYER CARDS – are in the porch – do take one, there is no charge.
DR JOHNSON – ‘A man is in general better pleased when he has a good dinner upon his table than when his wife talks Greek.’ (!)’ Cucumbers should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, and then thrown out.’ !
ANOTHER – fine week – excepting Hector. The presbytery roof is now finished so we are waiting for a good downpour to make sure it is watertight.
J O’D – ‘ We seldom notice how each day is a holy place where the eucharist of the ordinary happens. Transforming our broken fragments into an eternal continuity that keeps us. Somewhere in us a dignity presides that is more gracious than the smallness that fuels us with fear and force. A dignity that trusts the form a day takes.’
