I would like to say how much I enjoy reading the Newsletters,and The Lords Day, I almost feel part of the Parish. On the recent Rome Pilgrimage, I feel I have made some very special friends. I would like to request prayers , for all the people I have met during the Pilgrimage, particularly, Fr John, and Alison, who give so much of themselves for others. I wish you all a very happy, peaceful and Holy Christmas x

I would like if someone would kindly tell Terry Devlin whom I met in Lourdes last July that I still think and pray for him. He will remember me as I played the piano in the Solitude hotel and my son said hello to him a few days after I went home. Tell him I am now on dialysis but that doesn't stop me. I went to Lourdes this May and had my dialysis in Lourdes and I did not forget him when I prayed at the Grotto. Thank you Ethna McMahon, Co Tyrone N Ireland.

Also, thanks for the music which goes from strength to strength. I especially appreciate the Gospel being greeted with the the Alleluia!

My family used to live in Colchester Road before we left for Australia. My mother was Father Leahys first catholic convert. We would like to know what happened to Father Leahy and who was the first parish priest. I think a father Cryan baptised me in the 1940's. Thanking you. 2.10.2011 Melbourne Australia

I know I am late in leaving a tribute for Father David Everitt but I must tell all how truly inspirational And God centred this man was. He had an air of The divine about him. He helped me spiritually In many ways. His christening services where incredible He would hold the baby up at the end of the service and We would sing 'Here's a child for you o Lord'. He was Full of love for every member of his community And encouraged every one to go on their own Personal journey of faith. We all mourned for a Long time after he left Ashby de la Zouch. He was one in A million. Rest in peace Father D .... You were much loved xxxx

Thank you Father John for a wonderful service at our grandaughter Isabella's christening. So many people commented on how welcome they felt and how your explanation of sacrament made them feel involved in everything that was happening.
