notes from a small vicar
from a parish
in Liverpool, UK

    Monday, September 29, 2008
    Merton, de Mello, Manglewurzle and many other saints

    A Toxteth calypso band on the south side of the church trading tunes with a Liverpool Irish folk group on the north, generous helpings of food and drink at west, and eastwards, the stage set for the sharing of a 'Last Supper' within a party yesterday afternoon. And films projected on one wall including Boys from the Blackstuff and The Cruel Sea. All in celebration of Robert having been a priest for forty years. The above text is an extract - a small extract - from Robert's programme notes for the occasion which consist solely of a list which begins simply but profoundly: 'The people and characters who have 'informed' Robert's Priesthood'. It has been an excellently singular journey.
