VACANCIES – we have, once again, a couple of vacancies on the Governing Body of St Joseph’s, School. Do mention it if you feel that it is something you would like to undertake. The role isn’t overly onerous and is quite interesting, besides being a valuable service to the parish, the school and the community.
QUITE ASTONISHING – to know that in the century before 1630, 75,000 people were hanged, and the cruelty of the executions, even by international contemporary standards, is beyond belief.
RUTH BURROWS – ‘People who show up splendidly in crises can prove self-centred and childish in the ordinary rough and tumble of life. If we are looking for real heroism, the sort of heroism Jesus displayed, then we are likely to find it in some very ordinary man and woman, getting on with the job of living, totally unaware that they are doing anything remarkable and completely without pretension.’
AGEING GRACEFULLY – ‘Grant, O Lord, that the years that are left may be the holiest, the most loving and the most mature. I thank you for the past and especially that you have kept the good wine until now.’ George Appleton.
LES MISERABLES – is on at the Palace Theatre 19th February till 30th March. There has been a huge demand for tickets which are selling like hot cakes. Do put your name on the list in the porch if you would like to go. Mowtown is on at the Opera House – also in March.
