Pastoral Notes April 29th, 2018


As we prepare for the flower festival (19th-20th May) on the feast of Pentecost, we are also to celebrate the feast of the Ascension of the Lord on a Thursday once more (10th May) which will involve school-children coming to St Edward’s for the 10am Mass. (This restores the original novena – nine days of prayer – leading up to Pentecost). There will also be a Corpus Christi procession at St Edward’s School on Sunday afternoon 3rd June at 3.00pm, with other parishes in our Pastoral Area also joining in.
At the same time we will have a meeting to look to the future as Father Brian at Thrapston will be retiring at the end of August this year, though eventually available to help with Sunday Mass here and there.
