On Wednesday, a Garden Rosary and BBQ took place to raise funds for the new Shrine for the statue of Our Lady in the parish garden. After the rosary and hymns, there was a delicious spread of food.
There were also several birthdays to celebrate amongst the parishioners, as well as the 20th anniversary of the ordination of visiting priest Fr Marshall, and the 25th anniversary of Fr Morris’ ordination. Fr Marshall blessed the new shrine before celebrating with cake and ice cream.
Thanks to the generosity of those who attended, the cost of the new shrine was met. Thanks to all those who contributed to the food and drink, and particularly to Bob, Liam and Paul who built the shrine on the hottest day of the year so far!
