As I write this (and yet again, close to the deadline) we have had the great 50 days of Easter which culminate in the Feast of Pentecost, the outpouring of the Spirit on the discipes, we have yet to have our Quiet day led by Arch deacon Fiona, I trust it will be a a time of exploration and enlightenment as we consdier our failth and how we might share it and also be of service to our Brothers and Sisters, in this community.

Hard on the quiet day comes the St. Johns Festival, always a highpoint in the calendar, and an event not to be missed, such events cannot always expect to stay the same as they have done in the past, and you may have noticed some slight alterations this year to the format, I trust they met with your approval.  Thank you to all who work so hard to make these events so successful and rearding (as I am sure it will be.)  No doubt you will now be thinking of Holidays of rest and refreshment, if that is so and I hope that it will be for all of us, may it be a time when we can relax, refresh, recharge our batteries, take time also to refresh and recharge our spiritual batteries.

Wherever you find yourself this summer, return safe and refreshed.

With my love and prayers.

Father Tom
