Today Father Martin presided and preached at the Parish Mass and Father Mervyn read the Gospel and concelebrated. Father Martin explained the Trinity by using Gold as an example: a) gold with silver = white gold, b) gold with copper= rose gold and c) gold. All have the same identity and properties but all have distinct natures. The choir sang an anthem based on the hymn “Firmly I believe and truly, God is three and God is one”
YESTERDAY’S SATURDAY SHOP TOOK AN INCREDIBLE £330
This afternoon around 80 gathered for the annual Strawberry Tea when we were served with Strawberries and Cream with home made Scones, wine, cakes, tea and coffee. This annual event is hosted by Geoff and Cathy, Mary and Ken in their adjoining gardens. Tables and Chairs are moved from the church hall and gazebo’s erected just in case rain descends but although the sun didn’t come out very much we stayed dry. We were pleased to welcome some of the residents of Ebury Court who regularly attend Mass on Thursday mornings. A book stall, a bric-a- brac stall and a raffle added to the funds. Our grateful thanks to Geof, Cathy, Mary and Ken for organising this and to all those who helped in any way.
The afternoon ended with a celebration of Evensong according to the Book of Common Prayer celebrated in the garden. We will be able to publish the result of this fun afternoon next Sunday.
NEXT SUNDAY WE WILL CELEBRATE CORPUS CHRISTI WITH A SOLEMN MASS, PROCESSION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT AND BENEDICTION
