HOBBLE WITH THE BISHOP SUNDAY, May 18th, 12.45—6pm.

THETFORD FOREST This is the annual sponsored walk that the Bishop holds—and he does it himself—to raise funds for the Cambodian and the Holy Land links with our diocese. He asks young people from across the diocese to join him in this and to raise sponsorship in the parish. At the end of the walk, there is Mass and a BBQ. If you are willing to help with this important event in any way, please let me know asap. It would be good to have AT LEAST 2/3 young people from this parish go along with AT LEAST one adult to support them and help with transport. Fr David
