CHANGE OF DATE – our outing to Whalley Abbey and St Anne’s – which has proved to be very popular – has hit a minor snag. Our coach firm are unable to accommodate us on 30th June but can do so on the following Sunday, 7th July.

Because the driver, Brendan is most agreeable and the cost of hire much cheaper than other firms, we said that most people, more than likely, wouldn’t mind going the following week. Hope that is true!! List is in the porch – cost £5.

THE TWO SISTERS – from St Elizabeth Convent in Minsk, Belarus, who came, at short notice, on Friday to sell their artefacts seemed pleased with their visit – they raise funds to help the disadvantaged in Minsk.

FUTURE THEATRE TRIPS – will leave a list out in due course for Gypsy – on at the Royal Exchange in December; and Juliet, a new West End musical on at the Opera House in September.

OFFERTORY PROCESSION – wondering if anybody would like to join the team bringing gifts up to the altar- please do mention it.

MIRACLES DO HAPPEN – the weather was half decent for the procession on Friday and dry, more or less, for the Band Contest. The sun actually came out in the afternoon, fleetingly, it must be said. We were well baptised during the past week. The Almighty is over generous with his gift of rain.

MISALETTES –should be here this weekend – they were returned to Maynooth, Co Kildare because there was no one to sign for them. Some delivery men are happy to leave parcels in the porch, others insist on a signature. Not here yet.

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MOSSLEY– auditions to be announced!

WONDERFUL – the flowers on the floats of Our lady and St Anthony are so beautiful – our thanks to the ladies who prepared them. And, we must not forget to thank the men who had the herculean task of carrying the banners and floats during the procession – no doubt they burned up a few calories.
