Still time for resolutions...

Taking down the tree in Glasthule parish church...

I was taking down the Christmas tree in St Joseph's Parish Church here in Glasthule recently and it made me cast my mind back to the day it went up last December. Christmas always seems to fly past.

Now, here we are well into a New Year. I suspect many people who made New Year Resolutions are already probably starting to falter!

I've always thought that it's safer to make your resolution after you've given yourself a chance to settle into the New Year!

On that note, maybe now's the time for you to consider thinking more deeply about your vocation in life.

What is it that you think God might be calling you to do with your gifts and talents?

What good could you do in serving God and other people?

Big questions.

Why not resolve to giving yourself some time to considering these in the next few weeks and months. As always, if I can be of any help, feel free to get in touch at
