Pastoral Notes 15th October, 2017

ANNIVERSARIES

Stained Glass picture of St. Edward - Victorian lightPlease pray for our parish (patronal feast Friday 13th October St Edward). Our patron saint died in 1065. The stained-glass window lit up on the left of the sanctuary in our church was rescued from the dusty loft above the altar – by chance. It is by a famous local artist.
This year we pray especially for St Edward’s School on its 50th anniversary, indeed for the good fortune of having two great schools. We should remember also the Ursuline Sisters (1938-54) and the Sisters of Our Lady following them and still offering a weekday Mass at the Convent, 2 Glebe Avenue. We ask God’s blessing on them all.
