We are hoping to continue with the practice of last year and have Eucharistic adoration on Sundays during Lent. Of course, Lent starts this Wednesday, which means there's not much time for people to sign their names on the schedule in the church porch. If you have half an hour to spare this Sunday, please put your name on the list, and spend the time in the presence of the Lord. Eucharistic adoration will be from 2pm until 5.30pm, ending with Benediction.

Bring your families and friends and join us for an afternoon of activities.

If you want a say in the running of the parish, if you have a question, a suggestion or a hope, then come along to the Parish AGM, next Sunday 29th June at 7.30pm in the hall. Apart from our yearly report, the meeting also elects new members of the Parish Council, so if you would like to stand then be there.

Of course, I know that not everybody will be able to attend, so if you have something you'd like to put to the meeting and can't do so yourself, then contact me and I will act as your spokesman.

This meeting should also serve to highlight areas where we can proclaim the Gospel better, and if you have any ideas or suggestions, we'd love to hear them. In light of the recent statistics showing an all-time high in the number of abortions last year and the recent refusal of the Government to do anything about this, we have to look seriously at what we can do to promote the Gospel of Life in the face of this tidal wave of death. Please contact me with ideas and pray for our deliberations. Thank you.
