Jane's Corner

Dear Readers.

Before the Easter weekend, I did promise you a quick

letter and here it is. Not much to say, but still relevant

There is no rest for the wicked as the old adage goes,

and my week at number 16 was 5/5 in the back and front

gardens......purely tidying up from Winter. By Wednesday my

hands and back were so sore I could not move without a

twinge. Must be old age!!

I went to St. Joe's, Anderton with freshly potted Jonquils for

my family grave and was able to see the first signs of

Bluebells in the “plantation” so I was delighted to

see that spring really is on its way.

You can tell that a number of people are away as Adlington

and Chorley are so, so quiet, “dead as a door nail.....”

The persistent cold East air does not help either and there

are many wondering when the warm WILL come..

The wind is howling outside as I write; the sun may be shining

but there is no Spring yet.

We look to Easter Sunday.

God bless you all.

Will write again on Low Sunday which is Divine Mercy day.

Love and prayers and a very happy and holy Easter!


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.
