A Word from Fr Jim
When I was a Cistercian monk in Mepkin Abbey we had a weekly Desert Day – a quiet day with no activity – and plenty of opportunity to rest, relax and pray. I miss it – and I need it. So, I thought – why not do the same in the parish? This is our first shot at it – and it may change as time goes on. Starting on Tuesday 4th October, we will have it every Tuesday.
Here is the working programme:
You can dip in and out as it appeals or as you are free.
