A message from Fr John

Dear Friends
We had some lovely responses to yesterday’s letter; some great suggestions as to music in time of sadness and especially during these strange days.
Thomas Tallis - good for relaxing and contemplation
Glenn & Ronan
Rachmaninov’s Vespers
The Lark Ascending - good for times of stress
Mike and the mechanics - In the living years
I didn’t really focus on Messiaen but a good old friend dropped off some CDs for me - at a social distance of course  - Relax with the Classics  - they’re for later.
Could you prepare for Mass by reading the Acts of the Apostles 6: 1 - 7
Please remember all of our family, friends and parishioners who are on the frontline
Ian, Joseph, Lisa, Patrick, Chris, Catherine, Anne, Terry, Mark, Theo, Clare, Richard, Anthony, Jane, James, Mary, Francis, Ruth, Andrew
Mass today is 11.00am
Rosary and benediction 3.00pm
Dear St Joseph, pray for us
Every blessing
Fr John
Any other music suggestions?

Good morning - the cool nights are certainly easier for sleeping, aren’t they Happy Feast Day - Ss Peter and Paul, the rocks of stability and mission on which our Church is built

Good morning. I hope you’re well and staying safe. I’m amazed at the vast crowds that are gathering at beaches and for parties - putting themselves and others at risk, let alone creating the potential for extra strain on our wonderful NHS staff and resources.
