            Our Parish schools break up this Wednesday, the 24 th July. We wish all the children and their families well for the Summer. This is the reason Wednesday Morning’s Mass it at St Peter’s not Holy Name as it would normally be.
            I must thank Pauline Erikson and her Helpers for organising the Parish Barbecue last weekend. I think everyone who came thoroughly enjoyed themselves as normal. A lot of hard work goes into the preparation of the day and I am truly exceeding grateful to all who played a part. And thankfully the weather kept fine.
              I had a meeting during the week with a representative of the Diocese and reps from Cunliffe’s who are overseeing the work and of the subcontractors to arrange for work to take place on the Church roof together with the guttering and the painting. Work is due to begin in the first week of August. We are hoping that most of the work can be done without the use of scaffolding which will aid security. So, by the end of the summer school holidays we should have a smart looking church once again!

Making trouble

 
Christian Society in Britain has domesticated the Gospel.
 It is geared to loving God in moderation.
  We may give alms to the poor,
  visit the sick and the lonely,
  hold annual bazaars and flag days for those in need –
  in fact do any good works
  which do not threaten the pattern of our society.
  But to question the way in which public money is spent on housing,
  or to request admission of foreign refugees to our country,
  becomes a ‘political’ act.
  When we demand justice
  at the expense of other people’s comfort or security
  we become ‘trouble makers’.
