After all the excitement of last weekend, a quieter week, but the celebration of St Wilfred, who famously converted the South Saxons.

At the 10;00 o'clock Eucharist Father Stephen told us in his sermon some of the history of St Wilfred. He was a great missionary, travelling far and wide in the AD 600's bringing Christianity to many parts of England and to what is now Germany and Holland. He was a man of great energy, supporting the Roman style of Christianity over the Celtic form, and holding Bishoprics in several places. He returned to Roman on several occasions and it was on his return from one of these visits that he was shipwrecked at Selsey. It is said that he taught the starving Saxon inhabitants to fish thus ending the famine that was besetting them. He founded a Cathedral at Selsey, and the See remained there until the Norman Conquest. Although he was obviously a very strong and determined man who may have upset many people he did sincerely follow Our Lord's instruction to go out and tell the Good News. He is, with St Richard co-patron of the Diocese.
The Choir sang the 'The Alleluias of St James' as the Anthem. There was coffee after the service.
