DISCLAIMER: The parish is not responsible for whatever transactions the advertisers have to anybody who responds to this advert LAST TALK OF CaFE –Wednesday 11th February entitled “To boldly Go!” 7.30 pm-9.15 pm at Christ the King and St Colman Parish Hall Bitterne SO18 53G. NOTE from former parishioner ROBIN FOREMAN. As you know, “WAR BABIES” I am a member of a group we call the “War Babies” as many were born during the Second World War. I remember being taught in a Nisson Hut alongside an air raid shelter. The first classroom I was taught in was the Green in the corner of the playground near the prefabs behind the Police Station (it was built by the RAF who manned a barrage balloon on the site). We “War babies” are now in our 70s+. All attended St Patricks School until we moved on to other schools, I with other boys went to “Woolston Academy for Young Gentlemen!” (Woolston Secondary School) with most girls going to St Annes. Judith Veal emigrated to Australia with her family. Many of us joined the Scouts and Guides and when a little older all went to St Patricks Youth Club in the Tin Church. Through the years we have attended many funerals for the parents of a generation and some War Babies. On Friday 30th January 2015 many of us attended the funeral of Chrissie Callaghan who was the last parent of “War Babies” group to pass away aged 98. It was a grand “do” after the Mass, old boyfriends and girlfriends meeting again. Even I met my first girlfriend after all these years (my wife thinks she had a lucky escape!). May I thank Moira and the Callaghan Tribe for allowing me to serve at Chrissie’s funeral Mass. It was an honour to serve with a very old friend Pete Isham and Chrissie’s grandchildren. It would be nice for the “War Babies” to arrange a final social event and not a funeral. ROBIN FOREMAN. FLAME 2, CATHOLIC YOUTH FESTIVAL, WEMBLEY ARENA, MARCH 7th. Tickets are still available for Flame 2, which will be the largest Catholic youth event ever held in the UK. Matt Redman will be leading the music and a range of interesting people will be speaking, including Cardinal Luis Tagle, recently by the side of Pope Francis throughout his visit to the Philippines. The event is open to young people and young adults, Year 10 upwards. For a full programme and booking details, check outhttp://www.cymfed.org.uk/flame2 CHURCH PARKING REVIEW. There has been complaints from parents after fetching school children at the front of the church. There were reports of health and safety issues of cars coming in and out of the small gate where it is difficult to see children coming from the rear. We may need to close the gates again when there are no church activities.
