Pastoral Notes 8th January, 2017

Move at Corby
Fr Benny Jacob, who has been helping at Our Lady’s, Corby since November 2015, is a member of the Missionaries of St Francis de Sales (MSFS) and is being appointed by his Congregation to the MSFS Parish in Devizes, Wiltshire. He will have a farewell presentation in Our Lady’s Parish Club on Friday 13th January at 7.00pm and leave for Devizes the next day, 14th January. Father Benny has been helping here each month at St Edward’s with the Malayalam Mass, indeed twice monthly, and with many other services locally. Our good wishes and thanks go with him, and best wishes for his new appointment. It is not clear yet who will be replacing him to serve the Malayalee community. As you know we are altogether experiencing a decline in the number of clergy. Let us pray together to find a way forward.
