Pastoral Notes 28th October, 2018

Parish Events ………
At our Parish Open meeting on 18th October we were informed of difficult times at our Desborough Church, but Mass is going ahead for the moment in the very well-furnished Hall next to the church, with every possible item moved over from the original building! It was good to celebrate the Baptism of a young adult – a new start all round at that first Mass in the Hall! We were also reminded that the bishop – at least officially – is retiring next year, though has promised to stay on until his successor is appointed. Hopefully that will be possible. With the help of semi-retired Father Brian from Thrapston we are able to have Mass more often than for many years. It gives us time to pray and reflect on what God may call us to in time to come, but always to deepen our Christian community, and reach out to those in great need.
