Dear Parishioners

Some items which emerged from the Parish Pastoral Council meeting on Wednesday:

St Anne's Heritage Day is on Saturday July 9. The church will be open to visitors from around Ormskirk and we need a few more people to help act as stewards in the church, to help prepare the main hall in the pastoral centre serve refreshments, and help clearing up afterwards. Please sign up at the back of church.

St Anne's AGM will take place on Sunday 5 June in the Pastoral Centre at 1200. Please come! We would like to publish a list of all the parish groups so would someone write down a couple of lines about the group and hand it in to the parish office.

Would anyone like to represent the parish on the Churches Together in Ormskirk? Please contact Fr Godric for further details.

We discussed how we might take up the programme involved with dealing with potential suicides.

Deacon Mac is investigating further how our parish might respond to the Pope's request to the Migrants' crisis.

This year St Anne's parish celebrates the centenary of the consecration of the church. Any thoughts on how we might mark this will be very welcome.

Father Godric OSB

Glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen
