The Parish Priest of St Charles Lwanga parish, which includes St Peter Claver Community writes:

Good evening Father Peter

I send to you pictures showing the progress report on the church project at St. Peter Claver Community. These include: electrical installations, construction of permanent Lectern, fixing of door and window guards at the office, water washing of the entire building, etc. The construction of tabernacle will commence shortly.

I will continue to up date on the achievements.  I have also sent these pictures to my Bishop Charles A M Campbell of the Catholic Diocese of Bo.

A CHANCE TO ENJOY A WALK TOGETHER

ST JOSEPH’S ANNUAL PARISH WALK

This year the journey is a bare three miles in length and suitable for young and old alike.  It takes place on Saturday 29th July – with walkers leaving the church car park in Chance Street, Tewkesbury at 11.00am

A lovely opportunity to be together and, this year, enjoying the new conservation area on the outskirts of Tewkesbury.

A ‘bring and share’ barbeque will follow in the garden of Sophie Franklin, who lives close to St Joseph’s.  All are most warmly invited.  If you would like to join the walk and/or barbeque please speak to Chris Davies or leave a message on 01684 293273.  All food contributions can be safely left with Sophie prior to setting off to ensure everything is kept cool.
