On Sunday 15th August Bishop Christopher Boyle will confirm three people during the Parish Mass. Bishop Christopher has not been for a while and it will be lovely to welcome him back. The 15th August is the Solemnity of the Assumption (holy dying) of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Lucy Wiles will again use her talents to make some flower arrangements for the church (remember her work from Easter Sunday?).

I can’t think of a better excuse for a bit of party – Our Lady has been looking after us for a long time and it will be lovely to celebrate with our newly confirmed parishioners. Following the Mass there will be a little party in the Peace Garden with a light lunch. Everybody welcome!
