Today Father Mervyn presided at the Parish Mass and preached as Father Martin was preaching at one of the local churches. In his sermon Father Mervyn asked several people to exam an envelope but they all said it was empty until Father put his hand in and pulled out an orange. He used the orange to illustrate the Blessed Trinity. Despite the Bank Holiday the numbers attending
Mass today were average with a few new faces.
During the notices Father Mervyn reminded the congregation that there was still an opportunity to book to go to the Holy Land in October with two place available. He also reminded everybody that on Friday we will be welcoming Bishop Norman, the Bishop of Richborough who will be confirming a number of people from the parish and from the parish of Great Bardfield. He in invited people to sign up the list at the back of church for donations for the Reception after the Confirmation and Pontifical Mass.
Tomorrow a group from the parish are going to the National Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham.
