PARISH LUNCH – we will announce the date of our parish lunch next week.

TEA AND COFFE – available in the Parish Room after 10am Mass

PARISH WALK – we had a lovely walk last Sunday, and, believe it or not, it was really warm. All in all it lasted about three hours; setting off from Carbrook over the moors until we had a bird’s eye view of Dovestones; then back down the Roman road back to Carbrook. It is said that William Wordsworth walked over 150,000 miles in his lifetime; we have a bit of catching up to do! We noticed a profusion of wimberry/bilberry bushes laden with unripened fruit – should be rich pickings next month.

NOT AGAIN – see that the Grotto at Lourdes was flooded again. The diocesan pilgrimage leaves on 29th July till 6th August – see poster in porch

EQUINE INTEREST – hope that parishioners who ventured down to Ascott had a good week!

WAZZAMATTERWIDYOUBUD – clearly rhubarb is not overly popular! Still some left in the garden.

NEXT SUNDAY – The Italian Association has its procession, leaving George Street at 1pm and walking via Corporation Street to Albert Square.

TOO HIGH ? – an architect visiting the church recently for a diocesan audit – eg. condition of building and facilities, etc, wondered why the Stations of the Cross were so high up on the wall. What do you think? Should they be lower?

BOOK YOUR CHRISTMAS DINNER – Just as we are beginning to enjoy the summer, the signs are appearing – please, give us a break!
