» Last Wednesday a group of clergy for the diocese came for a day of recollection.

» Yesterday Fr Abbot travelled to Stonyhurst College in Lancashire for the opening of the Old Chapel Museum. Lord Alton and many other Catholic notables attended. On the same trip Fr Abbot managed a visit to the brethren at Ormskirk.
