Following a wonderful summer here in London, which not even the English can moan about, the autumn beckons us with a mixture of beginnings and endings.
September is a month of freshness– a time of new challenges, renewed vigour, and
an opportunity to appreciate the beauty of nature, as the bright colours of summer give way to the subdued shades of the Fall. For all of this, we give thanks to God, for the beautiful creation He has bestowed upon us, and for the opportunity of loving and serving him, wherever he calls us to be.
On a personal note, I feel fortunate to have been at Our Lady of Victories over the past three years. Thanks also to my fellow clergy and all parishioners for your love, friendship and patience. It has been good to be here, and I am grateful for the many blessings received - the greatest of which is simply to have shared with you in the work of the Gospel.
With my love and prayers,
Every Sunday, Mgr Jim Curry provides updates on the parish.
