We are going to have to closed the church for the next few days by order of the Health and Safety Executive whilst we get rid of the asbestos the accursed workmen disturbed in the crypt.
I can understand why some priests turn to drink or worst! It times like this one when feels particularly alone.
We are going to have to have to have Mass in our Parish Centre over the weekend, how we do it I don't know, it is going to be quarts into pint pots.
During the week there will only be Mass at 10am in the Parish Centre, there will be no Friday evening Mass and to be on the safe side the Missa Solemnis on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception is cancelled. If you come here on Sundays try and go elsewhere.
Say a prayer God will speed the work.
