News from Maria Pereira
We got some very good news from Maria Pereira; she got a whole body scan, and is very happy that
there appears to be a total remission of her disease!
This means she doesn't have to do agressive chemotherapies anymore.
A quote: "... Each message, each phone call, each expression of care, worry, affection, each word,
each prayer, each practical help, each suggestion, each piece of company, each visit, each letter,
each gesture, counted." ................ "I think I can now say with some confidence that within a couple
of months I should be ready to say ‘hi’ again to you personally and hug some of you with my very
tight hugs. Endless hugs and many ‘beijinhos’. Maria"
ICC will visit Utrecht; june 4
See next newsletter, for more information about the to be organized guided tour through Utrecht!
International Choir is still looking for new members
The Choir is "shrinking" and is desperately looking for new singers; do you like to sing, or do you
know somebody who does, please contact Thilda ([email protected]), or one of the other choir
members?
Coffee/Tea
There is always room for new volunteers to present the coffee/tea after Mass; there is a brand new
virtual list which you can put your name on: http://bit.ly/coffee-and-tea-service.
If you see that there is only one person sweating and working hard to provide everybody with a cup
of tea/coffee, please give him/her a helping hand?
