It is hard to believe that a year has passed since we had the visit of families and priests from Guatemala and Mexico. It was such a special time for the parish within the context of the World Meeting of Families. Over the last few days many of the visitors have sent notes remembering the friendliness and the generosity with which they were received in the Parish.
One of the visitors was Fr Pablo from the Parish of St Barbara. During the last week his church in Guatemala was burnt down. Thankfully no one was hurt and the people heroically saved the statues and the Blessed Sacrament. We are considering how we might help in the rebuilding of the Church and already have had several suggestions.
