6th Week of Easter 2020 

In today’s Gospel Jesus speaks of his imminent departure – next Thursday is the feast of the Ascension. He tells us ‘I will not leave you orphans’, words that have a particular resonance at the present time. He promises to send the Spirit without whom we can neither love nor serve him. We will soon celebrate the coming of the Spirit on the newly founded Church at Pentecost.

Bob Maidment’s burial service was a brief moment of coming together for members of the Aylsham community. It brought mixed emotions – sadness at Bob’s passing, joy at being able to greet each other and catch up on news, however briefly.

"Katie Maidment would like to thank everyone for their prayers, messages and practical support, following Bob's death. Particular thanks to the amazing number of people who turned out to walk with Bob to his final resting place or who took time out to be with us in spirit. Our parish 'family' has been a great comfort at a very difficult time. May God bless you all."

This week marks the 5th anniversary of Pope Francis’ letter Laudato Si: on caring for our common home. You can log-on to the CAFOD website for details of related events.
