Next weekend 7/8th October we welcome Thom Flint from CAFOD who will speak to us about CAFOD’s work in El Salvador. Parishioners will be invited to support the work with prayer, observing a fast day and give a donation if possible.
To Archbishop Peter Smith who joins us for the 11am Mass to celebrate the 80th birthday of St. Teresa’s.
Welcome also to Canon Brian Coyle, former parish priest and now rector of St. John’s Seminary.
Sincere thanks to everyone who contributed in any way to our big birthday party. Gratitude to Mr. Dachtler and the governors of St. Teresa’s School for allowing us to use the school hall. Thanks also to parents who have provided us with 80 children who will carry in the 80 years at the procession before Mass. Thanks to all who have prepared and contributed refreshments.
A particular note of appreciation to our special choir who have assembled for the event. We are grateful to Stewart Mackintosh (conductor) and Nicholas Wibberley (organist) who have given time, talent and enthusiastic energy to the occasion.
