Basketball with the Friars of the Immaculate

Yesterday we went to a Family day at the Franciscan friars of the Immaculate  at St Joseph's in Burslem. There were workshops (including a cartoon on Purgatory for the younger ones!!) for all the different age groups not to mention cake, biscuits and a game of basketball where Brother Peter took on about 20 children...and won!
He does have a slight height advantage and he is American, but some of the onlookers thought this probably didn't outwiegh the cheating that was going on on the other team...(net being held shut as Brother was coming to take a shot...3year old running off with the ball as Brother was coming to take a shot).....Fortunatelty, all this took place before confession, Adoration and Mass.

  1. The Friars of the Immaculate are wonderful! I've met them down in Cornwall, at Lanherne, and been blessed simply by being in their presence.
