Dear Brothers and Sisters!

I cannot begin to tell you how immensely happy I am to be back in the wonderful St Patrick's in the wonderful city of Edinburgh. I see many faces that I know well in this church however for those of you who do not know me, I had the privilege of serving in this church for 7 years and the honour of living in a Redemptorist Community - where you now have Mgr Phillip Kerr.

Since I left Edinburgh - nine years ago I have travelled to many different places - however that is not for here - but I would like to register my delight to return to this church - because it is St Pat's - but also because it is the home and final resting place of our Venerable Margaret Sinclair. I have know of the Venerable Margaret all of my life - believe it or not - because my granny always had a prayer card of the Venerable Margaret somewhere obvious in her house! So you can now appreciate how strange it was for me to find myself here in church those years ago. And you may well appreciate the great pride (not sinful pride) I was able to take when the hearse left the Mount Vernon cemetery with her coffin inside and I travelled all the way back here, with Ven Margaret's remains by my side.

Third Phase of the CSsR General Chapter...

europe 3rd phase of the g chapter cssr

The Third Phase of the General Chapter for the Conference of Redemptorist of Europe has started in Perth (Scotland) on 4th September 2017 (London Province of CSsR). There are 36 participants. They represent 1399 Redemptorists from 14 Units and from the Interprovincial Community in Albania. There are also two lay people among the participants (from the London and Madrid Provinces).

The Chapter started with the Eucharist presided over by the Superior General. Fr. Michael Brehl said that: “Like the crowd in the synagogue in Nazareth, we sometimes become nervous and uneasy in the face of change. Like Jesus, we need to remember that we are sent with a mission in the power of the Spirit.”

During the working session the Superior General talked about the orientation and the meaning of the Third Phase. He recalled that this Third Phase has specific goals:

Br Thomas CSsR Birthday...

Many of you will know Br Thomas from his time in Sunderland and his time in Clapham! He is a faithful brother who looked after many things to make sure all would be well. Br Thomas at the moment is in the Little Sisters of the Poor, in Vauxhall, enjoying a bit of care and attention! Recently he celebrated another birthday and the Sisters and the Staff made such a fuss for him.
