HANGING BASKET AND GARDEN COMPETITION – forms to participate are in the porch – or speak to Dean Aylett. Judging takes place at the end of July.

HATS OFF – to all who have been fighting the blaze on Saddleworth Moor. The Catholic Universe wanted to know how parishioners were coping; we in Mossley have just had the smoke and the ash to cope with – unlike our neighbours in Carrbrook. We are unlikely to forget this week.
CONGRATULATIONS – to Anthony Zidan who is to be ordained Deacon next Saturday in Shrewsbury Cathedral. We in Salford do not presently have any deacons, though some men are engaged in completing the four year course.
J O’D -‘in my family, our parents always insisted, before and after meals, at the rosary and at the Angelus time, that we bless ourselves and say the appropriate prayers. Bless yourself. If each of us has the ability to shape and form our lives through thinking, do we not also have a huge ability to bless our lives.’
