From the hights of First Holy commuion to the – not depths – but certainly different – level of the orindary meal.
During the summer months Tiny Footsteps Nursery – a great resource to the local community – and great support for the Parish in the up keep of the Hall – will be on their summer break. During that time we have much wider access to the hall for other activities.
One thing that is a fous for me in this period is the chances for us to gather socially.
To that effet I have “stolen” and idea that runs very succesfully at the Schoenstatt Shrine and Pastoral Centre in Kearsley – Fish Friday’s.
Fish, chips and peas (from Olympus, Bolton), bread & butter, tea & coffee… £6.50
You have to let us know in advance – no tickets on the door….

Last week and this we have focused on the children making First Holy Communion. It’s a big moment in their lives – even though it will be hard for them to comprehend. But for us too, it’s a chance to look at our own understanding and, more importantly, relationship to Eucharist.
Can you remember your own First Holy Communion. I told mys story – not what you would expect – and many other storues are the same – not waht you would expect. As we celebrate our children in these days – remember your own preperation – rember the moment you recieved the Body of Christ.
Bread of Life
So ordinary – yet so special. Bread is a commodity today. But , at the time of Jseus it was an imprortant staple. We here lots of biblical stories of the “manner in the desert”, moments of “unleavened bread”, the disciples in Emmaus “recognise” Him in the breaking of bread…
It is so ordinary – yet so special. something hard to comprehend.
Jesus died that “we might have life” and have it in full.
This is our “connection” to God – he comes to us again and again- and we can come to him.
Many thanks to all thaose who have prepared the children for this experience. We think of their paresnts and of our catechisms…
We live in the world of the web. This is one way for us – not only to communicate with one another in our Parish Community – but also to give witness… Let’s hope and pray that we can use these tools well….
