For the remainder of the day we had two lectures on Leviticus in the morning, and a wonder two hour

The usual situation exists regarding non-Roman Catholic being excluded from receiving the Sacrament but I was aware of this before and have come equipped with the Reserve Sacrament which I consecrated when I celebrated for the Patronal Festival on my 10th Anniversary. I will share this sacred provision with others who are excluded in this way and wish to receive when we attend the Mass. The next one will be at The Galilee on Sunday.
Bulk update has to finish here for the moment as time is pressing to get ready to attend the Synagogue and then Shabbat meal. More later. Shabbat Shalom.
