Pastoral Notes 16th September, 2018

Miscellaneous

Father Brian Leatherland is now officially retired from his post as parish priest of Thrapston/Raunds and Oundle. After a well-earned holiday he has already made it clear he wishes to be of help in Kettering parish, which is very good news. Mgr Tony McDermott will be helping out this weekend, and Father Tony Whitfield will once more help us over the following Sundays until Father Wilson returns on 2nd October.

This is a season of Harvest Thanksgiving, a special theme next weekend, with thanks once more to those preparing the churches so wonderfully. In Advent the Diocese encourages us to share an official video echoing Pope Francis’s call to care for our common earthly home. Each church will receive a package regarding this theme.
