All Change

a message from Fr John...

What a glorious summer we are having.  Soon our school will be closed and parishioners will be on holidays; something to look forward to.  There has been all change here at the Priory, with Fr Bob and I going away and Frs Michael Spain and Martin McDonald taking our places.  No one likes change but it is part of life.  Soon, however, you will be used to the new set up.  There is much to look forward to, apart from summer holidays.  We have especially the centenary of St Joseph’s which will begin on 1st January 2015.  We intend to have a year of celebration, climaxing on 29th July, the day when 100 years ago the Church was consecrated.  Following the meeting with the architect, it seems that most parishioners back the plans but we are listening to those who don’t, and where possible, making changes.  We are trying to make the Church suitable for the next 100 years.  St Joseph, our patron, would surely approve.  So, enjoy the summer, and your holidays.  Come back refreshed and relaxed, ready for whatever the future holds.  Know that you are always in the palm of God’s hand.
