This week we begin our Lenten journey, a journey of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. I am conscious that for many Catholics, Project Compassion features strongly in their history, as generous people who provide for overseas aid relief and development.
As we approach Catholic Schools Week 6th-11th March I am reminded of the caption on our promotional posters which reads Great Learning – Great Communities.
Sunday heralds the commencement of a new week and once again I find myself at my desk reflecting on the past week and preparing for the week ahead. I have not long been home from attending the Upper Hunter Regional Council meeting at Scone.
What a relief to have a cool change in the weather after the heat. I have no doubt that this has left us weary and in need of a good night’s sleep.
The doctors have told me that I have a few months to live; the cancer that began in my breast four years ago has now spread to my spine, ribs, hips and, more significantly, to my lungs.
Once again, the week begins with Sunday and my sitting at the end of the weekend to scribe something to you about some aspect of life in our diocesan community.
