Pastoral Notes 23rd July, 2017

‘INTERNATIONAL FLOWERS’
Many people have said how proud we should be of the parishioners who worked so skilfully and successfully to produce a floral display for the Seven Sacraments, with thought provoking prayers and appropriate artefacts. It has been truly artistic and accompanied by background supporting music.
It provided the setting for an inspirational ‘international’ Mass, with music from many continents, led by Father Pius inviting all to pray the ‘Our Father’ in their own language – and yet have everyone finish at exactly the same moment!
A great many photographs have been taken so that an appropriate record can be made available in due course*. A special thanks to all the variety of choirs, instrumentalists, also, with a hope that more regularly the music can be shared at Mass in many varieties and languages!
