If anyone else would like to join me who has become fed up with the Anglican Church and wishes to become a catholic then please come along to one of these sessions

St Josephs Church Shirebrook which St Tresas Church Warsop comes under as well as St Bernadettes in Bolsover are are collecting names for a new series of monthly sessions for adults who either want to become a Catholic or Catholics who would like to deepen their faith. These will be on Saturdays in St. Joseph’s Parish Room, starting after the 10am Mass and finishing by 4pm, with a shared table lunch. Interested? See Fr. Jonathan and/or sign the List at the back of the three Churches. First Session: 8th September. Then: 6th October, 3rd November, 8th December, 12th January 2013.

That's like being in the labour party, not getting your own way, throwing a strop and becoming a tory. Surely you either believe in one faith or the other. There are plenty of Mosques around when you get fed up of Catholosism.........

I left the Church of England because there was a huge bundle of straw. The ordination of women Bishops was the last straw, but it was only one of many. For years I had been disillusioned by the Church of England's compromising on everything. The Catholic Church doesn't care if something is unpopular

Then from "Didn't the Bells sound lovely"

Adrian Hardy wrote:The Church bells sounded quite nice today. Its amazing when you think that we have one ringer who is 92 and still climbs the 50 narrow winding steps to the ringing chamber and then rings non stop for nearly 30 minutes, another ringer is 82.

I myself was ringing this morning and won't be ringing for next Saturdays wedding either, but will hopefully be back in about 2 weeks time



When the whole purpose of church bells is to announce a service at the church and bring people together to practice and share the faith of that church.
