The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

Happy indeed the man whom God corrects! So do not refuse this lesson from the Omnipotent: for he who wounds is he who soothes the sore, and the hand that hurts is the hand that heals.

Job 5:17-18

A Thought for Today

In this love without beginning he made us, in the same love he protects us, and never allows us to be hurt in a way which would lessen our joy. When judgement is given and we are all brought up above, then we shall see clearly in God the secrets now hidden from us.

Pilgrimage to The Holy Land & Jordan 

        Depart 28th April, overnight flight on BA. Return 8th May 2019

        11 nights - 1 overnight flight, 3 in Tiberias, 4 in Bethlehem, 2 in Petra & 1 in Amman.

        Cost £1790 based on 26 - 31 pilgrims sharing. Single rooms will be very limited and the supplement is £450.

        Hotels are all 4* on a HB basis. The hotel in Tiberias has a private beach where you can swim in the Sea of Galilee.

        The itinerary includes an extra night in Petra to allow you more time in this historic city and Holy Mass in the Latin Patriarch in Amman.

        The return flight is at 08.00, only one a day, so an early start on the last day.

        The price includes a number of additional payments due. These are detailed in the attached.

 Flights will be held for us until 06 August, so I need to know if you are definitely participating or seriously considering but cannot commit at this stage. A reply before the end of July would be appreciated.
