Letter from Fr David Sherwood

My dear friends


A big thank you to the ten intrepid souls who remembered it was Sunday on 27th December and that it is our duty to be in church to praise God as they were. It was disappointing that we could not meet our families in person over Christmas, but at least we used Zoom. We need to spare a thought for all of those who do not have access to a computer. We are currently living in a time when we have to be more alert to the needs of those who live alone.


None of us will remember 2020 with much affection, except for those who have had the joy of welcoming new little people into this strife-ridden world. 2021 offers us with great hope for the future and I think it realistic to say that the end of the virus controlling our lives is in sight, but I would not be so foolish as to give a date when this will happen. Spare a thought for our government trying and not always succeeding in running the country during this time of great crisis. I applaud the opposition in parliament who have put the country before party politics in supporting most of what the government have proposed. We also have a Brexit deal, a new American president and with an end to the virus 2021 should at least be better than 2020. A very Happy New Year to you all.


With my love, Fr David

My dear friends If I asked “how are you?” your honest answer would probably be “I’m fed up.” We are restricted in what we can and cannot do. This is perfectly understandable but may I suggest a remedy
