St Therese's Shrine

We erected a shrine to St Therese of Liseiux, which will remain in place during the visit of her relics to this country. We have arranged a parish visit to her relics when they come Aylsford.

The Catholic Herald has a site on the visit.

One of the good things about having put the organ console in the organ gallery is having space in the church to do things like this. On Saturday I have a wedding, it will be the first time that a couple will have space to kneel.

The floor is a vast improvement, we still have to varnish the benches and raise the floor levels on the sanctuary, then it is the lighting.
Thank you to all of you who have so generously donated via the Paypal in the sidebar.

I've been a bit overwhelmed by the number of different editions of St Therese's 'Story of a Soul' available on amazon. Can anyone recommend a particular edition (in English)?.

In my opinion Mgr Ronald Knox's translation is the best and clearest. I don't know if it's still in print but you might find one on Amazon or in a library.
