Easter V - Commemoration of the laying of our Foundation Stone, 1858 - 2008

What a wonderful and memorable occasion it was. Few words as the pictures will say it much better.

Many thanks to Bishop Martyn Jarrett, the Bishop of Beverley and Mrs Jarrett for being with us. Bishop Martyn’s sermon gave us a lot of food for thought. Mass was presided by Bishop Martyn and concelebrated by Fr Mark North, Fr Barry Compton and myself. In attendance was the Mayor of Sevenoaks and Mrs Parry. At the end of Mass we assembled next to the foundation stone where we renewed our pledge of Christian witness.

We all enjoyed a wonderful and delicious cake prepared for us by Jez.

It was a very happy and special day in this our Year of Grace. Thanks to all those who contributed to make this day such a success.
