Corpus Christi

Here are some photographs of the wonderful celebration we had tonight on this solemnity of Corpus Christi. Presiding and Preaching was the Rt Revd Keith Newton SSC, Lord Bishop of Richborough. (More images under Recent Events in Parish Website)

After the sermon the bishop admitted two new members to the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament. The following pictures are shots of the procession. The canopy was carried by extarordinary ministers of Holy Communion while the torches by members of the Mothers Union. Four young members of our congregation were the flower girls and a boy was roped in to help with the bells.

The empty church as the procession was in the grounds, followed by Benediction in the Parish Hall and a good party offered to us by the local ward of CBS. Many thanks to the secretary of our Ward, Dr Turner.
