Vicarage Notes

Ascension and Whit

All are invited to the special services in Oxhill and linked churches this month.  The festival of Pentecost, traditionally called Whitsunday in this country from the practice of having confirmations with candidates robed in white, celebrates the birthday of the church.  Do join us.

St. Lawrence’s Annual Parochial Church Meeting

This was held last month with the customary reports and elections.  I would like to thank everyone who shares in the life of the Parish Church, giving time and talents to the P.C.C. and all the social and fund raising events.  We look forward to the next year!

Thought for the month

I am occasionally given old Bibles and Prayer Books to dispose of or “rehome”.  I am glad there’s now the opportunity to re-cycle paper as I always felt hesitant about taking loved, but worn and valueless, old books to the tip.  On the front page of one I found a quote attributed to Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556) which is appropriate for this time of the year – and for any century:

O Lord our God, give us by thy Holy Spirit

a willing heart and a ready hand
to use all our gifts to thy praise and glory.

God bless,
