Confessions and lunch

L-R Frs John Boyle, Tim Finigan, Chris Basden, Charles Briggs, Stephen Boyle

A group of us met up today at the Good Shepherd Church in New Addington where the parish priest, Fr Stephen Boyle had arranged for confessions for the children in the Catholic junior school next to the Church. Afterwards, he treated us to lunch at the Coombe Lodge restaurant on the way in towards Croydon. Conversation included an informal discussion of the diocesan "Towards a Vision" process as well as the usual exchange of pastoral ideas which get adapted from one parish to another.
