Message from Fr Richard:

I don't know how to thank you all for your kindness to me when I left St Elizabeth's and St Anne's! So many of you have wished me well during the last few weeks; I have received a huge number of cards, and the gifts which members of both parishes have made to me were immensely generous -- I cannot thank each of you individually, so please accept this as the expression of my thanks. I set off for Peru on Monday 23 July, and I shall take with me a great many happy memories of my five years with you, and we remain united in the love of Christ. And I repeat what I said to those of you who were at that wonderful garden party we had at St Elizabeth's on Saturday: "all I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you."

A Pilgrimage with a difference.

I have received information about a holiday/pilgrimage to St John's Holy Island of Patmos this September. The Catholic Faith Exploration team is organising the week-long pilgrimage. Daily Mass will be celebrated and there will be some talks on St John and Patmos. There will be time for private reflection and prayer and relaxing at local beaches, and sight-seeing around the island. The cost for half board is around 1100. If you are interested in having further details, please sign the lists at the back of both churches.

Live Simply - Grow a Garden

The Scouts have begun to turn a plot of derelict land at the side of the Parish Centre into a garden. The plot is all enclosed -a walled garden that can be seen from the windows of the lounge - and full of sun. Click here for further information.
