“The Happy birds Te Deum sing, tis Mary’s Month of May”

First Thank you to everyone who worked so hard, in various and  many ways,  to make our Easter Celebrations so successful and our Churches so festive, well done everyone.

I am writing this before the APCM, but to those relinquishing responsibilities, we would all want to say Thank You, “well done thou good and faithful servant” your efforts have been much appreciated, and those taking on new responsibilities Thank you and good luck we are looking forward to being the beneficiaries of your hard work.

I hope that you will hold in your prayers the Parish Pilgrimage to Walsingham, England’s Nazareth, If you have never been, do consider joining us next year, especially If “it’s not my tradition” for it is a truly remarkable and special place of  peace, reflection and spiritual refreshment and it’s not all about Mary. In any case Mary always points to Jesus.

We round of the month on Sunday the  28th at 18.00hrs with ”Stations” which we will a celebration in words, Music and liturgical action of the Resurrection, unlike Stations of the Cross which concentrate on the passion, This will be a joyous service.  I hope that it will be well supported, we present it on behalf of Churches together in Hassocks.

With my love and prayers.

Father Tom
