It is back to full time parish duties today with a very busy September ahead of us. There is the “Called to be One” event in church as well as the Ordinariate festival in London to look forward to. Seminarian Thomas Mason returns for his final two weeks on parish placement as we get to grips with our building project and plan some tree work in the grounds of the Church.
We are also planning a special fundraising social event to be held in the village hall on the 29th of November (get the date into the diary) It will take the form of a dinner and dance- the entertainment being provided by Saint Anselm’s in house band “Sold Out”- who played on the village green earlier this summer. The money raised will help us to get the lychgate, which will form the new entrance into Church, assembled.
On top of all of this my eldest son Benedict starts school. A big day for him and extra work on the school run for mum and dad as we cope with the shorter hours he attends as he is phased into the daily life of the school. Autumn is upon us then- a busy but productive time. I very much look forward to getting into the swing of things again after a very good summer break.
