At the Towards Advent Festival...

The choir sang a lovely version of the Londonderry Air, with these words:

I would be true, for there are those that trust me.
I would be pure, for there are those that care.
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer.
I would be brave, for there is much to dare.
I would be friend of all, the foe, the friendless.
I would be giving, and forget the gift,
I would be humble, for I know my weakness,
I would look up, and laugh, and love and live.

Hi Joanna

Have you ever considered a type of Catholic Day across the UK where Catholics hold a kind of Catholic festival in to the public...where everyone can attend and find out more about the Catholic faith. A kind of Towards Advent Festival...but in the summer and for the general public.

I think this would be a great idea for evangelising.

God Bless all your good work :)
