Jane's Corner

Dearest Readers.

Soon I will be away for my" Summer Holidays " in October. The days are now beginning to draw in and my gardening practises are getting less and less.  However, I managed a walk in the wilds of my local area one crisp dry sunny frosty day and it was magical.  Those are the days you remembe ras Autumn moves on.

 I never went away in the months of July and August as I was hoping to achieve quite an amount of gardening work but as we all know the weather was against us so here we are again. Énjoy the dry when it comes.

 Fr. P and I are really concerned about all the International Synods commencing with our Part Two ..especially the Amazonian One.That is of particular concern as it is the power- house of our oxygen as I used to tell my GCSE students. " Laudato Si .."  I was proclaiming it many years before then.

Have a good Half- term eveyone and be refreshed for the next exhaustive term ....called Christmas.

Take care and pray for our really sick people.

Love and prayers.


Most weekends we have our young people helping with the Collection, collecting Missalettes at the end of Mass and taking part in the Offertory Procession. We try to alter our front of church Tableau each week to fit in with the Gospel of the Day, and a short explanation is given to the Congregation.  

People show great interest in what the Catechist does each week!. Our parish is a small country one, and through the Sunday Mass our little ones get to know each other before entering our school.
