On the Sunday nearest to the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year the nation remembers those who have fallen in warfare. That hour, day and month of the year 1918 marked the time of the signing in Compiegne France of the armistice that ended the First World War. It was called the war to end all wars; in it the flower of Europe perished, 16 million in all.


The Word This Week

A most unusual feast! The Lateran Basilica is the Cathedral of the Diocese of Rome an ancient church first built near the walls of the city of Rome by the Emperor Constantine at the beginning of the fourth century. Every Diocese in the world celebrates the feast of the Dedication of their own Cathedral, since the cathedral is the mother and head of all the churches in the Diocese (in Salford this is celebrated on 14th June). The Lateran Basilica, since it is the place where the Pope has his cathedra or Episcopal throne, has the title Mother and Head of all the Churches of the City and the World. On this day we both celebrate and pray for the unity of those churches gathered in communion with the successor of Saint Peter. The marbles and mosaics of the Lateran, which together form a splendid and beautiful building, are a sign of the beauty of Gods family, the Church, gathered in worship the living stones of the temple of the Lord. This is a day to reflect on how this building, and cathedrals and churches everywhere are not just meeting-places, but visible signs to the world of the Body of Christ in prayer.



Next Tuesday, 11th November the Year 6 children from St. Mary’s School will be leading a remembrance assembly in the school hall to mark 100 years since the start of World War 1. Please come along, the assembly will start at 10.30am and finish with the last post at 11 o’clock. ‘Lest We Forget’.



John Kinsella wishes to say a sincere thank you to everyone who sent Mass cards, and who expressed their sympathy during the loss of his beloved Mother Mary. The support he received made this difficult time a little easier. Mary will have a special place in all our hearts, and through our cherished memories she will live on forever.
