      Lord make me an instrument of Your peace

          Where there is hatred, let me sow love; 
           Where there is injury, pardon;

           Where there is doubt, faith;

           Where there is despair, hope;

           Where there is darkness, light;

           Where there is sadness, joy.


           O Divine Master, grant that  I may seek

not so I much to be consoled as to console; To be

understood as to understand; to be loved as to

love; for it is in giving that we receive; and it is

in pardoning that we are pardoned 

it is in dying ... that we are born to eternal life. Amen


As we continue as a club, let us remember those who have helped to keep it going forward. Maureen Connor has written to say that her brother, Patrick Connor, died on 25 February. Pat was a treasurer of the club and a keen member for many years. We will have a Mass for him on Sunday 16 June during our Day of Recollection at Damascus House. In the meantime let us pray for Patrick, for Maureen and for all of our members. Maureen thanks everyone who came to the funeral Mass and all these who have written to her.

Eugene is compiling the next ramble list now and would like all details as soon as possible.


Many thanks to all or our ramble leaders who walk out and prepare for all of our Sunday walks. It is a great blessing that we can all share these very enjoyable days in the countryside.


Ron Scott has clarified the situation with regard to our families and friends who are non-Catholic in that all are welcome as our associate members. As they attend their own services on Sunday mornings they do not have the same opportunity to meet early trains for our rambles. However. we all meet up a t other times, notably on the Glastonbury walking pilgrimage in August.


And why not bring everyone along to Tower Bridge at 1 pm on Sunday 14 July for the start of the sponsored walk for the protection of unborn children. WALK THE TEN BRIDGES FOR LIFE.
