Parish Priest - Father Anton Column

Father Anton Parish Priest

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We start this week with something of a local sadness on hearing of the death of Gordon Banks.  He has been a symbol of national greatness and a local celebrity as a great player and a known gentleman of the area, supporting all sorts of good causes.  He will be sadly missed!  Let us spare a prayer for the repose of his soul.

It is also the start of Half-Term this weekend and my hope is that you all benefit from the break and the change.  I plan to spend a couple of days with my community of Sacred Heart Fathers and Brothers, catching up on news and planning for the future needs of our works.  Once again a little prayer please!

If we are on the move over the next few days let us pray for the gentle virtues of this weekend’s gospel, which talks about the Beatitudes.  It is a list that helps us make a positive and wonderful approach to life and the feeding of our spiritual life.  Blessed and happy are those who believe in the Lord and follow his ways!

Have a happy and holy week!

Father Anton s.c.j.
