A New Deacon


Lee has been a staunch member of our congregation for many years, together with his wonderful family. We rejoice with him on the occasion of his Ordination to the Diaconate and wish him well as he begins his curacy at St George's in the Meadows and St Cyprian's in Nottingham. Fr Robert, Fr David, and Fr Malcolm, together with several supporters from the parish, were able to be present.

We have had a busy few weeks in the parish - a very successful Jumble Sale followed in short order by one of our regular Book Sales, which raised £2000 in about two hours! We rounded things off with a festive Parish Mass of St Teresa of Avila, at which the celebrant and preacher was the Bishop of Richborough, on what was probably his last official visit to St Mary's. Our love and prayers go with him.

On the Hottest Day of the Year


It was good to welcome walkers and cyclists taking part in the annual Ride and Stride. And it was a pleasure to baptise Violet and to welcome her family and friends.
