Thirty young people from our Diocese have gone to Panama to enjoy this life-changing experience, though I think none from this parish. We have however helped some with finance. Now we can add our prayers for the ones currently enjoying this experience, and those still at home. Our Parish Council is looking for means to help young people find the value of belonging actively to our church when they have to live with so much discouragement in the general climate.

There are many children in the boundaries of our parish who have not succeeded in gaining a place in St Antony’s school. We have generous leaders who provide a very good hour of instruction each Saturday morning for these children. But the number attending has dropped, possibly because there was a rumour that the practice was coming to an end. Well the teachers will be there next Saturday and every Saturday. Do take advantage of this service. Your children depend on it.
