Many of you will know Br Thomas from his time in Sunderland and his time in Clapham! He is a faithful brother who looked after many things to make sure all would be well. Br Thomas at the moment is in the Little Sisters of the Poor, in Vauxhall, enjoying a bit of care and attention! Recently he celebrated another birthday and the Sisters and the Staff made such a fuss for him.
L to R:- Br Gregory, Br Martin, Fr Richard, Br Thomas, Fr Michael and Fr Bev CSsR
Thanks to everyone at the Little Sisters of the Poor.
We would like to say a massive Thank You to Fr Charles Corrigan and the students,
Bro Mike Taylor, Bro Royston Price and Bro Chris Reynolds for leading the Novena in Honour of Our Mother of Perpetual Help who preached with passion, with fun, with scholarly aplomb and with deep courage and conviction.
Also a Thank you to the parish for their wonderful hosting. People came from all around London and were very impressed by the warmth of the welcome they received.

Wednesday evening, on the Feast of the Visitation, was a very special occasion for our community here in Clapham as one of our brothers (Br Chris Reynolds) was clothed in the Redemptorist Habit. He also received the ministries of Lector and Acolyte, while another brother (Br Max Mura CSsR) also received the ministry of Acolyte. See the photos below…

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks to everyone who has sent me their good wishes today as I received the Redemptorist habit. It’s been a great day and all the more special to spend with my community here in Clapham. Thanks to everyone who supports me!
