As our community already knows, the couvent of St Alphonse is currently being emptied in preparation for the restructuration planned to begin next month; at the same time, the community are in the process of moving to our temporary residence (18-24 months) to the couvent des Sœurs de la Doctrine Chrétienne, Maison Vatelot, near the Gare Centrale. We hope to have completed the move, if not entirely the emptying of the couvent St Alphonse, by next weekend, 16/17 August. I will be away from Luxembourg from 17/08 until 27/08, on holiday in Britain. In my absence, Fr Dominic O’Toole CSsR will be resident with the other Redemptorists in Maison Vatelot, celebrating the Anglophone Masses, hearing confessions, and fulfilling other duties as required. I will, as always, be available via my mobile, and via email, for any urgent matters that may arise.

With best wishes for a good August,

Fr Ed
