On a more local note Bishop Kieran will be joining the young people of the diocese of the annual Youth Gather event which this year is to be held at Woldingham School, Woldingham in Surrey. Ray Mooney, the diocesan Youth Adviser is hoping that today's rain will have disappeared and as last year it will be a bright and beautifal day. Following Mass the Bishop will lead them off on a sponsored walk over several miles. This year they are raising money for a project to support abandoned children from slums in Kerala in India, CAFOD, and a project by one of our secondary schools (St John the Baptist in Woking) to build a school in Africa. We wish them well and it is not of course too late for youth groups and schools to come along. Just let Ray Mooney know you are coming.
The Lord answered: ‘Martha, Martha,’ he said ‘you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part; it is not to be taken from her.’ (Luke 10:42)
