Vicarage Notes

Autumn Services

Looking ahead, as well as the Benefice service here at Oxhill on August 30th, the Harvest Festival will be on Sunday September 27th at 9.30 a.m. and Remembrance on November 8th at 9.30 a.m.  All are welcome.

Thought for the month

August is traditionally a holiday month, and to those who are travelling, particularly families with children, we bid “safe journeying and return refreshed”.  Some readers will be welcoming family and friends to Oxhill and, of course, St. Lawrence’s will be open each day so that visitors can enjoy looking around.

I’m occasionally asked for the words of a Celtic blessing.  There are a number of short prayers that have that title, but one seems appropriate for this month:

May the road rise to meet you,

May the winds be always at your back.

May the sun shine upon your face,

And the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

God bless,
