Mass on Sundays at 11 am will be in the Rectory garden (weather permitting). We
hope to welcome those who have not felt able to join us for Mass in Church
since the outbreak of the Pandemic. There is very little seating available,
though chairs may be available from the Borromeo Hall. Parishioners are welcome
to bring their own seating.
Arthur Proudman: Joseph and I visited Broadway on Wednesday afternoon, and
discovered the grave of Fr. Arthur Proudman in the churchyard. Fr. Proudman had
been Parish Priest in Evesham before coming here in 1958. He left here in 1969,
and died in 1972. We prayed for him, of course.
Outreach: Part of the Archbishop’s Vision for the Diocese involves Social
Outreach, and through some of our groups this is already part of our life in
this Parish. Before long we hope that our groups will start meeting again
regularly (Ambrosians, Friendship Club, St Ambrose’s Companions, SVP). Our
Tenbury parishioners are involved with several charities, the Mission Boxes are
still reminding us of our responsibilities to the Church in deprived and
suffering lands, and we give regular and generous support to the Kidderminster
Food Bank. I met with MARIO SORANO during the week, and he has some ideas of
how this support can be extended and co-ordinated. I hope that he will be alble
to arrange a meeting of our various groups early in September to explore
