THE CATENIAN ROSARY GROUP - APPEAL
Since 2009 the group have been sending Rosaries to
Aboriginals in Australia and to Missions in the 3rd World
Countries of Africa. The work has now spread to islands in
the Pacific. To date we estimate to have dispatched 135,000
Rosaries but many more are needed. In our experience,
Catholics have unused Rosaries hidden away in cupboards
and drawers. Could you help this appeal by hunting for
Rosaries in your home and among family and friends.
Rosaries can be sent to: Michael Blackburn, 164 Green
Park Road, Halifax, West Yorkshire HX3 0SP. Queries to:
01422 352559, mobile 07967 140542 or email:

LIGHT REFLECTION - A Spoonful of Honey
As we walk the path of life and wonder what to do,
Could we be like Veronica, perhaps like Simon too,
Or a Martha or a Mary, Augustine, John or Paul,
But to imitate the master, God is calling to us all.
Adulthood is life propelling one
from the innocence of childhood
CHILDREN:
They drive you to distraction, then overwhelm you with love
