Dear Friends

On Saturday of this week the PCC is holding its annual Awayday meeting at St Mary’s Convent. It offers us an opportunity to pray together, to reflect on our life at St Nick’s  and to discern where God is leading us in future. Please do remember the PCC in your prayers.

I recently came across the following Franciscan blessing which I shall be praying this week, and what seems particularly appropriate in the light of recent events. You might like to pray it too.

May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half truths and superficial relationships.
May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression and exploitation.
May God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, doing in His name what others claim cannot be done.

With every blessing

Mother Eileen
