Sunday, 17 April 2011


Today we met in the Vicarage Garden where Father Martin conducted the Palm Sunday Ceremonies and then a Procession walked to the church singing “All Glory, Laud and Honour”. At the  entrance, we sang the Introit “Ride on, Ride On in Majesty”. After the dramatic reading of the Passion Gospel, Father Martin preached bringing to a conclusion the series of sermons on the theme for Lent “We are we here”. At the end of the Mass we went to the Memorial Garden where Father Mervyn blessed the new Calvary, given in memory of his parents and those who gave their lives in the service of their countries.

Yesterday’s Saturday Shop produced a magnificent £300. It will be closed next Saturday.
