Our New Fire, Vigil, Renewal of Baptismal Promises took place at 5.30 a.m. and afterwards we all adjourned to the Parish Hall for a sumptuous breakfast of Cereals, fruit juices, eggs, sausages, toast, marmalade and coffee or tea. The sausages made by our local butcher Paul was fantastic. Father Martin presided and Father Mervyn played the organ
At 10.00 a.m. it was time for the Solemn Mass of the day which was concelebrated with Father Mervyn presiding and Father Martin preaching and leading the Renewal of Baptism Promises. Pamela led us in our prayer. Our choir was augmented for the anthem by Ann and Ruth. At the end of Mass all the children were presented with an Easter Egg whilst all the adults had a smaller individual egg. Father Mervyn was surprised and delighted when he was presented with a huge Egg by Father Martin. All our chocolate eggs were by the Meaningful Chocolate Company which supports Fair Trade.
Easter Day finished with Solemn Evensong & Benediction at which Father Martin presided and Father Mervyn played the organ.
