My Dear Friends,

I do hope you are still enjoying this wonderful Easter Season. I was amazed to hear the media 'admit' that the number of people who attended church last weekend was up significantly. However it came as no surprise to me for I have never seen our church fuller; and what a source of real joy that must be to all of us who hold our faith dear.

On a purely personal note I would like to thank you all for your kindness and generosity towards me. As I am sure many of you are aware the Easter collection makes up a vital part of a parish priest's income and as ever you have been wonderfully kind - thank you.

Thank you also, for your generosity towards the Holy Places of our faith. They are of the greatest importance to all of us and yet they become ever more difficult to maintain. We have been able to send almost 700 towards their upkeep.

Finally, the annual collection for the "Priest Training Fund" will be taken up next weekend. All the money that you are encouraged to give will be used to fund the training of new priests. Please take an envelope today and return it next weekend with your donation.

We are very blessed in our diocese to have an increasing number of men offering themselves for the priesthood. Our need for them is very great, so let us be sure to give them our support!

God Bless.
