Fr Geoff Severs

Fr Geoffrey Severs, who had served as parish priest in Grange, died on 5th March after coping bravely with his final illness for a year and a half, most of which he spent with us.

His funeral at Boarbank was celebrated by Bishop Michael and very well attended by priest friends and many others. May he rest in peace.

 


trinitaThen each single believer was speaking in every language;

now, the united body of believers speaks all the languages.

So now all languages are ours, since we are members of the body

in which they are found’ (St Augustine, Sermon 269, on Pentecost)

Paul & Val Middleton

 

A VERY BIG THANK YOU to Paul Middleton, who is retiring as volunteer webmaster.John Moffat

Paul set up the website seven years ago and has kept it up to date for us ever since.

We are deeply grateful for his generosity and expertise, providing what has been a truly invaluable service for us.

HELLO AND THANK YOU to John Moffat, who will be taking over Paul’s job for us.

Many of you will know John, who is a regular visitor with his wife, Karen.

We are sorry it has taken us so long with the handover.

We hope to be back to regular updates of the website from now on.

Community

A few highlights for the Community since February have been three days singing with our teacher Anne Lampard,

from Skye, our Conventual Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Community Retreat in March with Fr David Kelly OSA,

and a very enjoyable and prayerful Eastertide with our many guests. 

It was also good to welcome Sr Anne Marie, our Assistant General, and to share visits with our Liverpool Sisters.

Guest House

If you haven’t been to the Guest House recently, you may be in for a nice surprise! Derek has been busy redecorating the hall and upstairs landing, and we have a stair and landing carpets.

This is part of an on-going programme of refurbishing the Guest House.

Weekend groups have included Sr Anne’s Newcastle chaplaincy group in January, and the Time to Reflect weekend in March, with a theme of Great Christian Teachers.

Two groups came for days of reflection: St Columba’s Parish in Barrow on themes from Vatican two and the diocesan candidates for the diaconate, with their wives, on preaching and Augustinian spirituality.

Fr Dixie lectured at St Charles during Lent on the Acts of the Apostles.

After Easter, Fr Peter joined the Diocesan pilgrimage to the Holy Land, which he greatly enjoyed.

Marymount

Joan’s programme of activities for the residents has continued apace, including live poetry, theatre and music, regular minibus outings, massage, baking and handicrafts. These have been supplemented by a couple of music nights. Women’s World Day of Prayer was very well attended; this year it came from France.

Pétra Szábó worked with us as a volunteer residential carer for a couple of months. It was a delight to have her with us, and we wish her the very best for her future.

Requiescant In Pace
