The Reflection piece of the weekly newsletter is usually penned by one of a loyal and committed collective of rotating authors working under the nom de plume of ‘A parishioner’. The column first appeared in the early ’90’s and has been a regular feature ever since. The content is as contrasting as the style of the different contributors, offering variously commentary on the readings, biblical and historical narratives, real life stories, spiritual insights and all with a tone of moral perspective which explores and illumes the faith experience. It is published by an equally committed and resilient crew in the parish centre who are friendly but uncompromising on publication deadlines and maintain submission discipline over tardy contributors by publishing weighty wisdom tracts from the Catholic Encyclopaedia should the situation require it. ‘A parishioner writes…’ must always go on!
A small group of parishioners puts the newsletter together each week from information received and approved by Fr William Hebborn, so that the Parish is kept informed of Mass intentions, other Services during that week and the various meetings and events taking place. We aim to keep the Parish informed of everything that is going on so that they can join in and feel they are part of the Parish community.
