This June has felt a bit like a whirlwind. There have been lots of special events: confirmations; a 24 hour prayer vigil; a visit from Ronald Crane and Jackie Ottaway from The Portal Magazine; the Ordinariate Pilgrimage to Walsingham; Going Forth Masses for First Holy Communions and Confirmations. The month finished with a visit from our Ordinary, Monsignor Keith Newton. Our group gathered at Karlie and Kevin’s house for a meal. Everyone bought something to eat and the combination of dishes was wonderful.

3pm saw people in groups leaving to head over the park to St Agnes to get ready for mass. Monsignor Keith made a very special announcement at the start of his homily. Philip Penfold has had the go-ahead from the Vatican to be ordained. So now we have something else to look forward to!
