With respect and affection

As we have celebrated the Golden Jubilee of our Church one name has cropped up many times. We have repeatedly thought of the faithfulness and hard work of Father (later Canon) Patrick Balfe, who was the driving force behind the building of St Wilfrid's. Some of our parishioners thought it would be appropriate to put flowers on his grave at St Winefride's, Shepshed at this special time.
May this faithful servant of the Lord rest in peace. Amen.

New Auxiliary Bishop for Westminster.

The Holy Father has appointed Father John Sherrington, at present parish priest of Good Shepherd Parish, Arnold, in our own diocese as an Auxiliary Bishop in the Archdiocese of Westminster, to work alongside Archbishop Vincent Nichols.
Father John said this as his appointment was announced:
“I hope that I can help people to know more deeply that they are loved by God, who calls them in their hearts to serve others. I would like to communicate the hope of the gospel to those in distress and need.”
What a lovely thought for today's Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus!

Please pray for Bishop-elect John as he prepares to take up his new duties in September.
