In three weeks (i.e. during the first week in May) most of the Redemptorist community will be in Perth with Fr General, considering the best way forward for us in terms of restructuring the Redemptorist family in the Conference of Europe. As a consequence it will be impossible for us to maintain the usual timetable of Masses that week. Fr O’Brien has kindly agreed to offer Mass at St Mary’s and Fr Smale will be in residence at Bishop Eton.
I am proposing that for that week we have a 7.00am at Bishop Eton and a noon Mass each day at St Mary’s. I trust this will meet with unanimous approval! As you well know, we are going to meet more and more of these challenges in the months and years ahead.
