Scripture Refelection

When the seeds of anger, violence and fear are watered in us several times a day, they will grow stronger.  Then we are unable to be happy, unable to accept ourselves, we suffer and make those around us suffer.  Yet, when we know how to cultivate the seeds of love, compassion and understanding, then those seeds will become stronger and the seeds of violence and hatred will become weaker and weaker.  Then we nourish peace within us and around us.  With this understanding we are already on the path of creating peace.   

Tich Nhat Hanh


Where is the life we have lost in living?  Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?  Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?  

T. S Elliot




Quite understandably, people regularly enquire about Fr Peter Robertson’s health. As far as we know he is still able to enjoy some of his daily routine although his strength is gently on the wane. He continues to express his appreciation for our thoughts and prayers and is being well cared for in the home of some very close friends.


Annual Parish Pilgrimage to Walsingham 2014 

Mon 13 October to Thurs 16 October.  Total Cost this year £190.  For further details please contact Mike Withers -  Telephone 574287.


Adoration and Healing Evening with Benediction is being held at St Oswald’s Church on Monday 21 July 2014 at 7.30pm to 8.30pm.  Come and pray for others and let others pray for you. Further details on the Notice Board.


Parish Dinner—in previous years we have held this event in July, close to the anniversary of the opening of the church. This year you are invited to come to Spirit Restaurant in Victoria Park on Wednesday 22 October. More details will be provided nearer the time when tickets will be available for approximately £20 a head. Please note the date on your calendar.


 NOT QUITE THE TOUR DE FRANCE ...but you will surely be impressed to hear that on the last weekend of July fellow parishioner Andrew Thorley and a colleague will be cycling Coast to Coast along the Trans-Pennine trail between Hornsea and Southport (via York). They are fundraising for CAFOD.


At the moment CAFOD is in desperate need of support to help the many refugees in Syria. We live in a small world so any help you can give for CAFOD would be greatly appreciated and may just make the world a little bit better.


If you would like to sponsor Andrew we will provide a sponsor form.
