From Down Under
I was amused to find this photograph on the Friends with Christ Blog. It was set up by the students at Campion College in Sydney where Fr Richard Aladics is chaplain. We may feel that ghosts and ghouls have taken over our celebration of All Hallow's Eve, but it's not all bad. I noticed here that a lot of the children went round dressed as Angels and a few as saints. That shows the effort by the local Christian Churches to reclaim Halloween may be having some effect. During the Vocations Directors' Conference one of the priests mentioned his habit of handing out prayer cards when children came trick or treating. I must get in a supply for next year and encourage parishioners to do the same!
