UNITY IN DIVERSITY

The bright and colourful decoration of St Edward’s last weekend for the Divine Mercy celebration reminds us of the universal nature of the Church. But it is a universal Church made up of local churches. Where the Mass is celebrated, there is the Church. It reminds us of the local communities with their own local challenges and opportunities.

Northamptonshire County Council until recently appear to have said they have no room for even one refugee family. More recently it appears one family will be welcome in Kettering. At the Quaker Hall on Lower Street a group from Churches Together has formed to help make this possible. There will be an opportunity for support for this venture in due course.
