Barbara Dickson Lunch & Cathedral Wine Tasting

Just a sincere word of thanks to Valerie Ball for organising and to Barbara Dickson for speaking so fascinatingly at the lunch on Monday which was a tremendous success; and to Darlene and the Social Committee for the excellent wine tasting on Friday evening which was not only great fun but also very informative. The next Social event in the Cathedral Calendar will be the Ceilidh – watch this space of details.

God bless you all,

Fr Patrick, Fr Jamie, Sr. Mary Simone and Deacon Peter
