Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Even though it is holiday time it has been an eventful week.  First of all the Llandudno Trip was a very enjoyable day.  Following a delay on the Motorway due to a collision (fortunately not serious) the day went smoothly.  The weather forecast was not great but we were fortunate that the seaside was sheltered from the breeze and there was no rain until late in the day when we had a short downpour.  By then I think everyone was in a café getting ready to come along and board the coach.  So a good day was had by all.

A little while back we recall the Ordination to the Diaconate of Seamus Lewis.  He sends a message of thanks to the parishes, “Thank you for your cards, prayers, messages and gift on my Ordination to the Diaconate.  The parish has been very influential in my faith journey and will always be my “home” parish.  I hope to come and thank you in person.  Seamus!”

Also on Thursday we had the happy occasion of the Wedding of Joseph Bridgewater and Emma Whitehurst.  The weather was beautiful as was the day itself.  We wish them all blessings and happiness for their future together!

Next week Father Dolman will be here giving an appeal on behalf of the Vocation Service of the Archdiocese.  I am sure you will all make him welcome and listen to the good work that is being done by himself and his team.

In three weeks time Fr John Downey will be here giving a Mission Appeal for the Comboni Missionary Fathers.  Again please make him welcome and help cater for his needs!

May the weather keep fine and everyone benefit from a break and a rest!

God bless and keep you all safe in his care!

Father Anton s.c.j.
