NEWSLETTERThere will be no newsletter next week due to our secretary being on holiday.

THE POPE’S PRAYER FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST
In his prayer intention for the month of August 2019, Pope Francis invites us to pray that “families, through their life of prayer and love, become ever more clearly schools of true human development.”
What kind of world do we want to leave for the future?
Let us leave a world with families.
Let us care for our families, because they are true
schools for the future, spaces of freedom, and centres of
humanity. And let us reserve a special place in our
families for individual and communal prayer.
Let us pray that families, through their life of prayer and
love, become ever more clearly “schools of true human
development”.
