Update from Monday's Meeting in Wimbledon

I publicised the meeting about the Papal Visit at Sacred Heart, Wimbledon, from Joanna Bogle. She has this update for us:

We offered fresh coffee and Bavarian chocolate cake, suggested a £3.00 donation
(proceeds to Maryvale) and advertised the event in the parish newsletter and in
neighbouring parishes. We expected a reasonable turnout - the parish is a big
one with good numbers for Sunday Masses. We got a magnificent crowd - extra
chairs brought in, standing room only at the back, people sitting on the floor.
The parish priest gave a wonderful welcome, and as people left they were given
copies of the special edition of Magnificat booklet, with all the liturgies for
the Papal visit. It was a simply wonderful evening.
