Thought from Fr. Colm - 29th March

What a marvellous time was had by all at the International Meal last Sunday. Each national dish was explained - their history, their contents etc. All delightful to taste too. Italian, Polish, Indian, Mexican, Philippine, and others which I cannot recall the name of. My apologies if so. But the spirit of sharing in The Meal has such rich implications for us all who find it difficult to get the time to sit down as family and friends. We will most definitely be having a follow-up on a regular basis. And thank you to parishioners who also helped.

'Dinner, a time should eat wisely but not too well, and talk well but not too wisely.'

W. Somerset Maughan.
