This weekend members of our Church Family have been on pilgrimage at the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. Nine of us were there from Friday to Sunday and four other pilgrims came for the day on Saturday or Sunday. It was an excellent, prayerful and enriching weekend filled with laughter and friendship. Here are some photos from our time in England's Nazareth. Click here to download the parish pilgrimage booklet.
During June St Mary’s is open until 8.30pm each day from Tuesday to Friday. This extension of our opening hours means people can appreciate the church in the beautiful glow of the evening sun. Come in to pray, to rest, to think, to light a candle, to sit in the Presence of Jesus at the close of the day. On other days the church closes after Evening Prayer. We open at 8.30am each morning and at 7.30am on Sundays.
We had a lovely celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi in St Mary's last night. The choir sang beautifully at the Eucharist, we all joined in the great Eucharistic hymns and then enjoyed kir royal and Eton mess afterwards.
For the great Feast of Pentecost (Whitsunday), St Mary's was decorated with beautiful flaming roses, lilies, freesias, peonies and alliums.
Choral Evensong next Sunday, Trinity Sunday, will have a spring bank holiday outing to All Saints’ Besthorpe: 6.30pm as usual. The choir will be singing music specially selected for the intimate surroundings of Besthorpe Church. All welcome!
After the 10am Parish Eucharist on Sunday 20 May, the Feast of Pentecost, please join us for a Church Family Pentecost Picnic in the beautiful Rectory garden. Bring a rug or chairs, something to eat and drink, and share this celebration together.
