Today Father Martin presided and Father Mervyn concelebrated and preached. He took as his theme the Gospel pointing out that people visiting the Temple were often cheated in several different ways. The Money Changers gave a very poor rate of exchange whilst the officials would often turn down a sacrifice which had been brought by one of the faithful so that they could sell a suitable animal at an inflated price. Jesus was angry at the way the temple had been turned into a market place and at the way people were cheated.
After coffee, the cremated remains of Jo Molesworth were interred in the church grounds. After a brief service in church we went to the garden of remembrance for the interment.
