Dear Parishioners

We can get used to anything! We easily tune out of all that is around us. I find I have to remind myself to listen to the birds each day. It is quite possible otherwise to go through a day without any awareness of their beautiful, heartfelt singing!. 

Once you decorate your home with paintings or posters, how often do you notice them after that?

Well, some displays are to pass on information and so they need to be refreshed regularly. During Lockdown I for one, tuned out of the display boards in the church and in the hall. At last though, we are getting on with updating them. 

One large display board is on the wall of the entrance to the hall. It is supposed to display interesting or attractive areas of parish activity. The old display is now down but what will replace it? Do you have any photos or interesting material to display for anyone visiting the hall. I am keen to have it                                            

                                        God Bless,                        Fr Doug
