Welcome to Fr Michael
I am very grateful to Fr Michael for celebrating the Sunday Mass this weekend. If all has gone to plan on Friday, I will have had a small operation in the hope that surgery will provide some assistance to my voice. Afterwards, there is a mandatory period of 48 hours total silence and a gradual return to use of the voice. Fr Anthony.
