bread of life


There  was a nearly full church this morning for the Parish Mass at which Father Mervyn celebrated and preached. Today our intercessions were led by our Lay Reader Joan. In his sermon Father Mervyn reminded us that Jesus had called himself “the Bread of Life” and that everyone has been invited to his banquet. He recalled that Napoleon when asked what had been the greatest day in his life it had been expected that he would quote one of his military achievements, but he  had replied “the day of my first Communion”. We should take to heart the words of St. Francis de Sales: ”Only two people need frequent Communion – the not so good that they might become better and the good that they might stay that way.” We were saddened to learn of the death of one of the stalwarts

Yesterday’s Saturday Shop took a truly amazing £389


There will be a meeting with Father Martin after the Parish Mass on Sunday 2nd September in the hall
