Many thanks and Goodbye - Thanks to everyone who has supported the Chaplaincy this year. Particular thanks to all the altar servers, readers, musicians, cooks, Cathsoc and anyone else who I may have forgotten. We really do appreciate your hard work and contribution! Goodbye also, to those who are leaving this year. It has been a joy for us to have you in our community. If you would like to be added to the alumni mailing list just drop me an email.

Also wanted now are volunteers to join a Sewing Group at Feniton every Thursday lunchtime, to make the costumes.  Anybody interested please contact Ruth Yendell on 01392 215147 or email .


Lost Property - Has anyone left a very nice pair of fleece lined black leather gloves and a small black umbrella at the Chaplaincy this term? We also have a long, wide black cable knit scarf and another small black umbrella. Let me know if these belong to you so that we can keep them in a safe place until you can collect them.

Ask a Theologian - I will be continuing with Ask a Theologian next year so if you think of any burning questions over the summer do not hesitate to send them to me via this email. Rather than doing a question this week I wanted to end with a reflection from Pope Benedict xvi which has an important message for all of us but most especially those who are leaving:
“Are we not perhaps all afraid in some way? If we let Christ enter fully into our lives, if we open ourselves totally to him, are we not afraid that He might take something away from us? Are we not perhaps afraid to give up something significant, something unique, something that makes life so beautiful? Do we not then risk ending up diminished and deprived of our freedom? ... No! If we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. No! Only in this friendship are the doors of life opened wide. Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed. Only in this friendship do we experience beauty and liberation. And so, today, with great strength and great conviction, on the basis of long personal experience of life, I say to you, dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life. Amen.”     

 
I hope that your time at the Chaplaincy has deepened your friendship with Christ and helped you to discover the truth and freedom only He can give. Wherever life takes you, always remember to stay close to Christ for it is He who gives meaning to your life, and it is in Him alone that true happiness is found.
