Thought from Fr. Colm - 7th February 2020

Feedback can be important, positive usually the most welcome. So in that vein, the feedback on increased choir members at St. Godric’s on Sunday has been very good. The same with welcoming the visitors. Nice meeting up again with the familiar faces, but the smile, or hello, to the stranger, is worth more than many a cuppa with my pals.
