Sunday 17th June - Festival Mass and Lunch
The first of the two liturgical high points of the Festival was the Festival Mass. We were thrilled to be joined by the Bishop of Richborough, the Rt. Rev'd Norman Banks, who was principal celebrant and preacher.
Providing music for the occasion was Michael Overbury at the organ and Shirley Overbury as our cantor. The Mass was accompanied by very beautiful music.
After the Mass almost 100 of the congregation sat down to a very enjoyable lunch with some of the visitors who were joining us for the occasion. A very happy time was had by all - and its always lolvely to see Bishop Norman!
