In the footsteps of our Saviour...

Pope Benedict has suggested that an ideal way to mark the Year of Faith is to make pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The Presentation Brothers have answered that call and will travel to the land of Our Lord on 26th October 2013 for 7 nights.

What an excellent assistance it would be for anyone discerning a religious vocation!

If you are interested you can see full details on the Congregation homepage here.

Happy New Year...

I was helping to take down the Christmas decorations earlier. A thought struck me as I was taking the angel from the top of the Christmas tree - now might be a good time to thank God for all the angels we are blessed to have in our lives and who help make us the person we are today!

They often seem ordinary and unassuming but they are the ones who in 2013 will be our friends, who will care for us, see to our needs and will always be ready to lend a hand. These are the ones whose kindness, patience and friendship is unstinting and inspiring.

As you put the angel from your tree away, think of those angels we take for granted – angels who work so hard for others and who daily cross our paths.

May the dawn of this New Year, bring promises of new joy for you. May you find your direction in life and may each day be blessed with peace, prosperity, good health and happiness!

May your Guardian Angel be at your side "to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen."
