A remarkable Nigerian sister has rolled into town, full of fond memories of Bishop Owen McCoy of Oyo. I've yet to tell Sister Goretti the story of 'if you want to kiss my ring, it's in my back pocket!

Hi Paul,

Hi Paul,

I trust all is well.

As you may recall from some of my previous contributions I spent a very happy summer in 1973 as a counsellor at Camp Lavigerie, a family camp run by the White Fathers in Onchiota, NY. Well I recently came across an article on the web by way of the White Fathers/Camp Lavigerie group on facebook, which I thought would be good to share with other Pelicans, especially those who may have attended the scholasticate in Vanier (Eastview), as, I am sure, a fair number of them may have also served at Camp Lavigerie.

http://duffyscreek.com/2015/08/01/a-saranac-lake-guy-the-story-of-camp-lavigerie/

If we can link this to the Pelicans site in some way would be nice.

Thank you.

Take care,
Tony

This is what happens when the developers take over from the White Fathers: Oak Lodge in Totteridge is for sale again, after a slight make-over. Who has a spare £16,000,000?

I have just learned of the death of Godfrey Tortolano OFM who was at the Priory in the early 1950s. Despite leaving the Missionaries of Africa, he became a Missionary in Africa for many years.

His obituary is here:

Chris Cooper informed me earlier that Gerard Francis Cummins has died. He hopes to give us further information soon. The funeral is on Monday (23rs) - probably too late for those who might wish to attend. Hopefully Chris will be able to let us know of contact details for sending condolences to fsmily and friends.

Did you see the eclipse today?
Here in County Durham it was gloriously sunny so quite spectacular with an eerie light although not quite as dark as I would have expected for a 95% eclipse.
I reminded my daughter that the last solar eclipse was the day she was born in 1999. “When you were born, Amelia, the birds stopped singing and the sky grew dark” I said. I videoed the event – the eclipse, not the birth! Perhaps I should name the clip ‘Omen IV’.
