Lent IV

Good numbers in both masses for Lent IV. Michael Payne was our preacher today. He spoke about Mothers, the Church as Mother and the loving care of Mary our heavenly Mother; he ended his homily by praying the Salve Regina - Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy...
During the offertory the image of Our Lady that will be on pilgrimage to Parish homes was blessed. After Communion as is our custom for Mothering Sunday flowers were blessed and distributed among the congregation.
After two home communions and the hospital visit we had another meeting of the five o’clock Church which was well attended too.
