Bro Royston Price: Our thanks to Royston for all he contributed during his month’s pastoral experience, including his thoughtful reflections, his help with the altar servers, his visits to the schools, the hospice and some of those who are housebound, not to mention his contribution to the meetings he attended and his help around the monastery. We wish him and Bro Michael Taylor every happiness and success in the novitiate in Toronto. Bro Michael, who comes from the parish, is around at present, after his pastoral experience at Redemptorist Publications.
Fr Andrew will be in Middlesbrough for the next fortnight so that Fr Michael Henesy can have a break, but he will return for the month of August to allow me to have some holiday.
As Fr. Richard leaves for pastures new he leaves us with this message
"Sincere thanks to everyone for all the good wishes received over the last few weeks.
Please keep me in your prayers as I take over my roles in Clapham.
Be sure to keep an eye on the website - www.redemptorists.co.uk
- and that will keep you up to date!
Thanks, God bless and Good bye!"
It is difficult to keep pace with all that is happening at present, but here is a succinct update. Fr Richard will celebrate the 10.00am today and leaves for Clapham tomorrow. Once again we wish him every happiness. Fr Andy Burns is due to arrive and take the helm on Wednesday. The lift is progressing well and the four confrères at Hawkstone may be able to rejoin us next weekend. Fr Barrie O’Toole returns from Ripon for an appointment at Broad Green on Tuesday. Hopefully this will go well and his recovery will continue apace.
The Redemptorist Community. The next two weeks will be challenging. There will be just four of us resident in Bishop Eton: Bro William (working in the prison), Fr Smale (Foreign Mission Appeals), Fr Casey and myself. Frs Milcz, Johnson, Russell and Hunt are in Hawkstone while the lift is being renovated. Fr Reid is saying ‘goodbye’ this weekend and then giving a retreat to some religious sisters in Birmingham before finally moving to Clapham. Fr Burns should be with us by the end of the month.
Redemptorist comings and goings: During the past few days there has been a gathering at Hawkstone Hall (Shropshire) of Redemptorists and their lay associates who are involved in religious publishing around the world. Clearly, it has been a huge success. A number of the delegates have been staying at Bishop Eton on their way to and from the congress. Also our Provincial Council will be here on Monday for one of its regular meetings.
Regarding the members of our own community, some of those who are entirely dependent on the lift will be moving to Hawkstone for the next couple of weeks because the lift is due to be completely overhauled, so there will be fewer priests concelebrating the noon Mass each day at Bishop Eton.
And finally, please keep up your prayers for Fr Barrie. He was discharged last Tuesday, but had to return to the Royal the following day. We hope he will soon be home for good.
Visit of our Provincial Council. Fr McAinsh and his two consultors (Fr. Richard & Fr Gerard Mulligan) will be at Bishop Eton on Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss the future with us. Please take note that we may be extra occupied on those two days and please pray for God’s blessing during this time.
