Thank You for Friday!

I would very much like to thank those who made Friday evening such a memorable occasion for myself and the Parish. Though I have been ordained for 26 years this is the first time I have been Inducted to a particular role in the church. The obligation seems quite daunting but I feel assuared with your help all that is required by the Parish Priest is indeed a realisable opportunity.

I wish to thank the Altar Servers, musicians, all those who helped with the Liturgy and all those who made the Reception such a lovely evening.

Fr Peter.
