It does get better

Father Francis Wadsworth, the eminently likeable new Parish Priest at St. Marie's, Manchester Road, Bury will be offering a Missa Cantata at 7.30p.m. on Friday 16th. January.

Thereafter, Mass will be offered every Friday at St. Marie's, Bury at 7.30p.m. some will be low and others sung.

Following the departure of the Norbertines from St. Chad's I am delighted that we will once again have another regular weekly Mass - and at a more convenient time, which also incorporates the First Friday Masses, which were a feature of the Norbertines.

The hymn "O Bread of Heaven" reminds us that God repays each grief, with joy. Fr. Francis is one of those priests who is clearly glad to be rejuvenated each time he recites the prayers at the foot of the altar before offering the Holy Sacrifice.

God bless our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI!
