Dear Parishioners,

We can all wish one another a ‘Happy Birthday’ this weekend as we celebrate the beginning of the Church at Pentecost. It is a beautiful and energetic Feast, reminding us that each is gifted by the Holy Spirit and called upon to share their talents generously and indulgently with those who occupy the pathway of life with them, whether they live under the same roof or are just part of a fleeting encounter.

Enjoy the bank Holiday; and I hope that it will bring families and friends together in a harmony that contains something of that peace of which Christ says the world cannot give. 

With an assurance of continued prayerful remembrance, kindest thought and affection.

As ever, Fr. Nicholas

Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Come, Lord, and take over my life
you are true love, love divine.

Flowing and glowing,
brightness in my darkness,
power in my weakness,
peace in my troubled life.

What beauty and purity,
sweet fragrance and harmony
what splendour and wonder,
such joy and glory, Lord.

You are so brilliant and illuminating
so caring and comforting,
so gentle and renewing
so patient and liberating,
so motherly and wise.

You are true love, divine Lord,
come and take possession of my soul.

Come, Holy Spirit, come.
