WELL-DONE: Rebecca Cook (P.5) who joined her Uncle Thomas, in completing the Race For Life, 5K, in memory of her dear granny, Ann Campbell. I received a special note, also, from Bishop John to thank all who joined him on Wednesday evening for the very prayerful rosary and Benediction concluding our May Devotions. A special thank you to those who worked so hard, so that St Fillan’s (church & gardens) were looking their very best. May God bless you all and Mary keep you in her motherly care. PS. See you again on Friday, at Jubilee!”
