Thought from Fr. Colm - 11th October

Thank you to all who organised last Sunday's Partnership Open Day for the Durham Martyrs. Held at St. Joseph's, it showed the spirit of welcome that is a feature of all our three Mass centres. A special thanks to all who mucked in by way of helping with flowers (stunning) and providing photos of people and events from yesteryear. And to those who simply made visitors welcome with chat, a smile, a cuppa and the mopping up after. All built on a true spirit of what Community is very much about. We hope to continue in this same spirit with the forthcoming Lumiere and return visit of the Russian Choir to St. Godric's.
