BISHOP JONATHAN'S PARISH VISITATION DAY - WEDS  26TH MARCH 2014

On Wednesday 26th March +Jonathon - the Bishop of Fulham, spent a very busy and productive day in our parish. During his time here he presided over the usual Weds School Mass at Peter Hills, following which he met some 6th form students and members of the Senior Management Team over lunch at Bacon's College.

 

The schedule Fr Mark and Fr Richard had drawn up then took him to Albins, the UpMarket Charity Shop, a meeting at Bede House as well as visiting some parishioners at home.

 

The day ended with an informal get together including a lovely meal (provided by Helen and Florence) at St Mary's with it's PCC.

 

Here are some memories from the day.

FR RICHARD'S ORDINATION DECEMBER 19th 2012

Many congratulations to Fr Richard who was ordained on Wednesday 19th December at St Mary's.

 

The church was full to the rafters with standing room only in which many of the local clergy were in attendance as well as the Bishops of Edmonton, Southwark and Manicaland. It was also great to have Fr Richard's family and friends at St Mary's to share this momentous occasion  - we wish him a long and rewarding ministry.

 

Here are some memories from the evening.
