12 Oct The Bishop and the Glazier!
October is proving to be rather a busy month so far. Bob Cole came to replace 6 of our oldest windows that were in a very poor state and beyond repair. He and his helper Tony were very sensitive to our needs, stopping work during Mass and working very efficiently without much noise and no mess. So we continue to be blessed by hard working and trustworthy workmen who produce first class results.
On October 1st we had a friendly visit from Bishop John Arnold, Auxilary of the Diocese of Westminster, who for many years has carried out our triennial visitation and presided over our elections. Bishop John is Chairman of CAFOD, the Catholic Agency For Oversees Development. He brought us up to date with all that is happening in the Diocese and the interesting places he gets to visit with his work for CAFOD. He next trip will take him to Burma. He also introduced us to the iPad which most of us had never seen before. Needless to say we were amazed!
