My Dear Friends,

Once again I'd like to thank you all for your wonderful support for our recent Stewardship Renewal campaign. Gillian is collating all the data and we will let you know the results just as soon as we have them!

In just under two weeks time the official launch of the "Year of Faith" will begin. But what is the Year of Faith? A non-Catholic friend asked the not so unreasonable question: Isn't every year a year of faith in the eyes of the Church? So perhaps it's better for us to use Pope Benedict's words. He said we should look at faith as a "lifelong companion that makes it possible to perceive, ever anew, the marvels that God works for us. Faith commits every one of us to become a living sign of the presence of the Risen Lord in the world." I am very keen to gather together a few enthusiastic members of our community to come and meet with me to look at how best we can make this true for our community. Please consider this call and speak to me!!

Finally, Friday of this coming week is the autumn family fast day. Please do take the special CAFOD envelope home with you today. They will be collected at all masses next weekend when we shall be celebrating the Harvest.

God Bless.
