WHITBY – is a popular destination for many parishioners.and just mentioning that a new museum at Whitby Abbey has opened. The display is contained in the house built by the Cholmley family who took over the monastery after the Dissolution of the Monasteries – Whitby in 1539. St Hilda died in 680. It must have been a chilly place to live in the winter time.
INTERESTING – in an interview in 1995 the late poet Seamus Heany remarked ‘Catholicism has given me the right to joy. People talk about the effects of a Catholic upbringing in sociological terms – repression, guilt, prudery. What isn’t sufficiently acknowledged is the radiance of Catholicism. It gave everything in the world a meaning. It brought a tremendous sense of being, of the dimensions of reality, the shimmering edges of things. The older I get, the more I remember the benediction of it all.’

GRAND NATIONAL – hope our punters hit the jackpot!
