It was all so relaxing, sitting in the Parish Garden under cloudless blue skies and enjoying the warm sunshine whilst some music for easy listening was being played in the background.


I suppose there must have been between 26 and 30 of us there, including Fr. Jean-Patrice and Fathers Phillip and Raji, whom we were very happy to see again.


Strawberries and cream were the ideal fare for a hot summer’s day, but somehow most of us also managed to find room for a slice of at least one or two of the delicious cakes arrayed before us. There was a constant hum of conversation, so it was quite late in the afternoon before parishioners began to leave the Parish Garden.


Many thanks to Kath Brown for organizing and setting up the music and, together with Mary McLoughlin and Clare Allen, for providing those mouth-watering cakes & biscuits.
