Welcome. We welcome Fr. Wynn S.M, the superior of the Marist Community based at Blackburn, who will be celebrating the Masses here at St. Mary's this weekend.
Lourdes at Home. Thank you to everyone who made the weekend such a prayerful and joyous occasion. I found the candlelight procession to the grotto on the Saturday evening to be a really moving experience. I think it is an event to keep in the parish calendar again for next year. Thanks again to everyone.
Hospital Chaplain. Fr. Frank Parkinson is now the new full time hospital chaplain based at Blackburn. If you ever do find yourself in hospital and would like see a priest then ask the ward staff to contact him. The parish priests in the area will continue to cover Fr. Parkinson for his days off and holidays. We wish him well and pray for him as he takes up this new appointment.
