As the new academic year begins we welcome back the staff and pupils of all our schools with an especially warm welcome to those who are joining us for the first time. New starts, fresh opportunities: let us hope that our dreams will be realised, but above all let us support one another to face the challenges the coming year will bring. The country is certainly in a kind of turmoil, the like of which I do not recall in my lifetime: all the more reason for us as a Christian community to be a haven of love, hope, trust and unity. Let’s go.

Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time (Eccl 3:17-20, 28-29; Heb 12:18-19, 22-24; Luke 14:1, 7-14)

Raised by our love

We live in a world where self-promotion is at the heart of many superficial relationships.

But ours is a New Covenant of love – Jesus refers to this in the Gospel. In this unique relationship we seek to encourage and raise each other higher. When we fail, as inevitably we do, He calls us to ask forgiveness of each other.

The Marie Curie Helper Service is Recruiting

The Marie Curie Helper service recruits, trains and supports volunteers to support terminally ill people (defined as anyone with any terminal illness, not just cancer) who are in the last 12 months of life.

This support follows the terminally ill person wherever they are, whether it be in their own home, hospice, hospital or nursing home. Our volunteers provide companionship, emotional support, practical support, provide a break for carers, information giving and signposting.

The support may be face to face (which it normally is) or could be by telephone if the person isn’t up to a physical visit. The same volunteer will then sometimes provide bereavement support for that person’s carer or loved one for up to 3 months after death.

This is an amazing service with incredible volunteers. Marie Curie is now recruiting more volunteers. If you or anyone you know has any questions about the service or wishes to know more, please do not hesitate to give Jan the Volunteer Coordinator a call on 0800 304 7402 or 07928 525611

The next meeting of the Cathedral Book Club will be Thursday 5 September at 7.00pm in the Gibberd Room.

The book this month is Snap by Belinda Bauer. 'The best crime novel I've read in a very long time.' Snap decisions can be dangerous. On a stifling summer's day, elevenyear-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack's in charge, she'd said. I won't be long. But she doesn't come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever. Three years later, Jack is still in charge - of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they're alone in the house, and - quite suddenly - of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother.

New readers are always welcome.
