PARISH AWAKENING: I remain encouraged by your interest and some encouraging comments on my article and other articles in the Boston College resources’ magazine on Catholic Families. In view of this, when you have finished with your copy of the magazine, would you be kind enough to return it to the porch of the church so that others may have a chance to see the material?

I will be meeting up with Fr Paul Cannon and Sharon Beech in early August. Their book will be on sale (£7.95) after Mass in the coming weeks or at Bishop Eton Monastery. Please keep reflecting and planning in your own areas of ministry and interest.
