Back in the parish
Returned home this morning and, after a couple of hours sleep to mitigate the effects of jetlag and no sleep on a very cramped aircraft, pastoral work recommences, meeting a parishioner picking up her daughter from school in the church car park, and then a phone call from a couple asking for a passport to be signed. They then communicated the news that they are expecting their third child so the Book of Blessings was sought and a blessing duly given. There will be other more challenging pastoral matters ahead but it was good to be once again with the people of the parish.
