TEA AND COFFEE – after Mass in the parish room – access through sacristy.

BRITISH SUMMER TIME – clocks back this weekend.

HALF TERM – has arrived with a well earned rest for all. The weather has been lively this past week, if mild; it might be as well to keep the wellingtons at hand next week. Monday’s storm might shake the leaves off many a tree. In mid-November 1798 in Hampshire, Jane Austen is enjoying the unusually fine weather and writes, felicitously, ‘ not very becoming perhaps in the morning, but very pleasant out of doors at noon, and very wholesome – at least everybody fancies so, and imagination is everything.’ We will have to get used to the long dark evenings once again. Pope Francis said recently that it’s ok if a husband and wife throw plates at one another as long as they make it up before bedtime

– let’s hope we don’t hear too much ‘smashing’ going on in Mossley – after all, the Upper Class like to hear the sound of breaking glass!

RAINER MARIA RILKE – we are the bees of the invisible.
