For three days this week, I have been delighted to host a Symposium of eight Catholic Pastors of parishes who offer pastoral care to people in the English language. From Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Poland and France, we have exchanged news and searched for the best way forward in this interesting time for the Church. Our group meets ever two years and this year I have had the privilege to host the gathering. It is a wonderful opportunity to hear of the working of the Spirit.
In France today, 8th May, is a holiday marking end of World War II. Then, our Thursday, we will have a holiday and a 'Holyday' for the Feast of the Ascension. Never a dull moment! AT
