Pastoral Notes 7th July, 2019

A personal message from Canon John to us all-
“Many thanks to everyone for kind wishes and prayers, on this rather long absence from the parish. I am in the Bishop’s House, next to the Cathedral in Northampton, a very splendid Mansion, with garden. I’m not sure how old it is but Northampton Diocese was one of the first seven Dioceses of England and Wales, established by Pope Pius IX in 1860 (I’ve been able to look round the Cathedral and see again one of the stained glass windows which depicts our own patron, St Edward)
I have a further operation on 11th July, and pray that all will be more settled from then on. With my prayers and best wishes, Canon John.”
