Mon 18th Mar 6:30pm: Vigil for victims of NZ terror attack

This unfortunately came in too late to make the Sunday News Letter.

Preston Faith Forum invite you to attend a vigil for those killed and injured in the terrorist attacks in New Zealand on Friday.

If you can attend it would be good to show your solidarity and defiance against the rise of hatred and violence. It is important to come together and declare that we will not be intimidated or divided.

Date: Monday 18th March 2019

The Friends of Tabor email service is closing

It has been over a year since the Carmelites left Tabor and Margaret McNulty offered to set up friendsoftabor@outlook.com to keep people informed about what was happening with the sale, where groups were meeting and what retreats and events were being held.

Since the Xaverians have now settled in and the calendar is filling up the time has come to discontinue the friendsoftabor email as all the information can be found on the website and through the weekly updates.

  • Gillian Coxhead continues to offer Carmelite Spirituality days and a monthly prayer evening at the Convent.
  • Donna Worthington is also offering Retreat days and other events.

From time to time we may post about these events but if you want comprehensive information then please contact the appropriate organiser directly.

We want to take this opportunity to thank Margaret for her work in keeping the community informed.
