Pique Nique Time


The Holy Ghost Parish is blessed with many families from all over the world. In recent years we've had the joy of welcoming a good number of young French families to the parish. It's particularly convenient for them because there's a reasonably local annexe of a French school in the area. Many of the children, however, attend either our own parish school or Oliver House a local independent Catholic school.
On Saturday, for the first time, we invited the French families to join us for a picnic in the presbytery garden. It was great for me: I got the newsletter done in the morning and was ready in time to welcome everyone who came with lots of wonderful French food. I was also able to pop over to the parish school for the summer fayre.
