This evening we celebrated a lovely Mass in thanksgiving for the many years of devoted service given by Christine Gilbert to our parish primary school. Christine is retiring at the end of term after 20 years at the school in various administrative roles and also as a Governor for some of this time.
Unfortunately I forgot to have my camera ready and the light in the hall was probably not bright enough for my phone camera but I hope you can see well enough to see what a marvellous spread the PTA laid on in the hall after Mass. It was a very joyful Mass and it was lovely to be able to continue the celebrations in the hall afterwards.
Of course, although Christine will be retiring from the school, she is not retiring from the parish and we look forward to seeing her busy around the place as usual.

It is important to mention that it is not only Catholic doctors who feel strongly about this but they are also supported by doctors of other Christian denominations as well as Jewish and Muslim doctors and some who have no religious faith.
If you have missed your copy of the paper this week, you'll find a link to the article here.
I recently received this interesting video from Fr Fergus O'Connor, a priest of the Opus Dei Prelature. My grateful thanks to him for forwarding it to me. I hope you enjoy watching it. I understand that more will follow.
