Talent Show

On Saturday 16 July, our Parish held the Talent Show with a delicious meal for guests, generous Lottery prizes and a programme of performances by our very talented Parishioners, young and... a little older ones.

This was organised by the Sunday School to raise money towards the Piam Brown children's cancer ward at the Southampton general Hospital. It was a second fundraiser that the children took part in, and upto date they have raised £350 (the first event was a sale of cakes, made by the children during the Easter party).

Pilgrimage to Mt Athos 2016. Fr Joseph Skinner

- Fr. Joseph, was this trip in any way different from your previous ones? - Every visit to Athos is different. It's very difficult to express in words. This one was very calm, we walked absolutely everywhere, from one end of the Holy Mountain to the other, it was a total immersion into the atmosphere of the place, very peaceful. We travelled from monastery to monastery, staying a night in each one. We arranged it so that we didn't use taxis, but walked from one place to the next. We covered 124 km in just 4 days.
