VISTING PARISHIONERS IN HOSPITAL: People often like to be visited by a priest from their parish while in hospital. It is now becoming increasingly difficult to do this as the front desk in the hospitals no longer have full details of the patients in the hospital. In the future, it will be impossible for priests to visit people from the parish in hospital unless the family have informed them in advance. voice mail or email

In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test.

In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson."
