CONFESSIONS – Saturdays at 10.30am and 6.10pm

CONGRATULATIONS – to Fr Eugene Dolan from St Edward’s , Lees, who celebrates his Golden Jubilee this weekend.

MEDITATION – Mondays at 7.30pm in the presbytery. All welcome.

THE LION KING – tickets for this award winning musical have been ordered for Tuesday 19th February. The cost is £38. Travel will be arranged from church. It should be a super night out.

CHOIR UNDER THREAT – water cascading through the trapdoor above the tower might have engulfed our choristers last Sunday; however, adversity and a good soaking were averted by the remedial actions of two good samaritans. The drains in the tower were unblocked and the accumulated debris – mainly the remnants of crows’ nests and pieces of wood- were removed. The choir can once again hit the high notes and will not be singing in the rain.

SUNDAY WALK – we thought that we might have a parish walk one Sunday next month – no more than three hours – not to raise money, just to enjoy.

SCHOOL – returns this week. Oh, the weather!

WILLOW WOOD HOSPICE – Margaret Buckly is taking part in the Midnight Walk for the Hospice. The list for sponsors is on the notice board.

COFFEE MORNING – in aid of the Macmillan Nurses will be held in the meeting room on Saturday 30th June, 11-1pm.

PROPERTY – plastic facia boards have been fitted to the elevation of the church facing the presbytery, and also to the presbytery. We hope, very soon, to give part of the interior of the church a lick of paint.

MIDSUMMERS DAY – the longest day this week, though we probably haven’t been able to make the most of the evenings. Things can only get better.

Rabia, a medieval Muslim mystic, said that the only way to become patient was to stop complaining, and Thich Hann, a Vietnamese Buddist, said that the first step towards a new way of life was to begin smiling. So there we have it – grin and bear it! The flowers in the gardens and back yards will be enchanting when the sun comes out. We have been sent five copies of the Universe which are in the porch. And two parishioners are making a splash in the Isle of Man!
