Feast of St Theresa of Lisieux
Our patronal saint’s day Mass was held on Friday October 1st and was a wonderful event. The beautiful floral arrangements featured the traditional red roses against a background of Autumnal golds and the choir led the singing. We were delighted to welcome the Rev Amanda Digman, the recently installed Rector of St James’ Church. Fr Tom presented Rev Amanda with the gift of a statue of St Theresa on behalf of the parish and also presented statues two other parishioners recognized as having made significant contributions to the Parish over the last and many previous years. Fr Tom also presented certificates of appreciation and small gifts to all those who had made a significant contribution to the running of the church during the Covid Crisis, cleaners, stewards, handymen etc. After Mass, there was the chance to socialize over refreshments.
