Apologies for my absence

When I last posted on this blog on 19 March I said that I would be absent from the blog for a few weeks. Those few weeks have very quickly turned into nearly three months. I do apologise for my long absence and for not moderating comments. Life has been very hectic over the last few months, what with the birth of Harriet, various hospital trips with my eldest daughter and the business of parish life. A few people have emailed to ask where I've been and to ask that I start posting again. Many thanks for this prodding and rest assured posting will re-start over the summer.

Could ask you to keep me in your prayers over the next three weeks. On Sunday July the fifth I will be ordained priest in Lincoln Cathedral. I will celebrate mass for the first time on the same day at St Michael and All Angels in Louth. The lovely image of Our Lady I've posted above is in the Lady chapel at St Michael's. The mass is as 5pm and any local readers would be more than welcome to come along if you can make it.

If anyone would like me to send them a physical Ember card please email me. There is a lovely panel of fifteenth century glass on the reverse of it, which I'm not going to post on the web!
