Fr. Bryan is 60

Fr Bryan qualifies soon for a bus-pass and many other advantages of crossing the sixty-boundary. I would like to invite you to a simple celebration on Friday 20th April to Evening Prayer followed by a get-together in St John Fisher Hall. We would have a shared supper – so could you bring something Italian – pasta or the like or something for a pudding to follow. There would be a bar on the night.

May I request that you do not give presents. Instead may I invite you to sponsor some of the restoration work in Kearsley Mount Cottage? We need a new living room carpet (about £400.00). We would like to put tiles in the two bathrooms (about £200.00) and we would like to replace the faulty window in the cottage meeting room (about £300.00) Also we would like to put in new blinds on the windows (about £400). If you could make a contribution it would be gratefully received

I am looking forward to welcoming you on the night. Fr. Bryan (To download the poster click here)

And a few years ago I had the  privilege of meeting him myself. I asked him about it and he confirmed the story to me, and I wrote about in my book “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (But Were Afraid to Ask)”. Buzz Aldrin took Communion with him out of the Earth’s orbit and on to the surface of the moon. He and Armstrong had only been on the lunar surface for a few minutes when Aldrin made the following public statement: “This is the LM pilot. I’d like to take this opportunity to ask every person listening in, whoever and wherever they may be, to pause for a moment and contemplate the events of the past few hours and to give thanks in his or her own way.”  He then ended radio communication and there, on the silent surface of the moon, 250,000 miles from home, he read a verse from the Gospel of John, and he took communion. Here is his own account of what happened: Continue reading “Communion on the Moon”
