         You will notice that we have the funeral for Cath Forshaw on Tuesday in St Peter’s Church. Also there is no Mass on Friday as I am at the Funeral of the father of friends of mine, Lol Fraser, in Widnes. I know that you will remember both families in your prayers.
      As I said last week, we host the other Churches of the Oxton and Noctorum Churches Together group for the joint service to mark the
International Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This service is at 6.00pm today (Sunday)19 th January 2020. I hope that if you are able you will come and support this service.
    On Wednesday I met together with the other Foundation Governors of St Peter’s School to short list candidates for the job of Headteacher of the School. The reason for this is that Julie Farrelly is resigning in the summer to begin a life of retirement! I hope that you will keep the school and governors in your prayers especially on 30 th January when we have the interviews of the candidates.
