On Saturday 31st July we celebrated a special Mass for all the sick of the parish. A number of sick and elderly who cannot usually come to Mass made a special effort to come along. The SVP provided transport to those who needed it. The Mass was in honour of Our Lady of Lourdes. We united ourselves spiritually with the bishop and all the pilgrims from the diocese who are in Lourdes this week. During the Mass the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick was given to those who are seriously ill. Those who could not attend were especially prayed for and remembered.
After Mass we all had High Tea in the church hall, courtesy of the Catholic Women’s League, it was good as anything you would get at the Ritz:
