A parishioner told my that each day during this lock down she takes one picture of something that makes her feel good or captures something positive and life giving from this strange time. I asked her for one of those pictures and she sent the image of this beautiful tree near her home in Oatlands.

Another parishioner sent me this text and picture – My husband is now attending daily Mass; something totally unusual and impossible for him normally….He shall be speaking in his heart the Spiritual Communion prayer daily, when his life goes back to “normal”….

While out on my morning walk I spotted these deer – just a short walk from the church. Well worth getting up early for….

If you’ve got a good picture of something that helps you through this time please email it to me (with some text about why it helps) and I might put it on the blog so that other parishioners can enjoy the picture or the thought too. God bless, Fr. Con

Camino 2018

Greetings from Logrono. 22 people from the parish/friends of parishioners are walking 5 days of the Camino de Santiago from Logrono to Burgos. I’ll post a few pictures over the coming days. We’ll remember you in our prayers as we walk along. Tomorrow’s stage at about 20 miles is slightly longer than the usual daily section.
