A beautiful sunny summers day this Sunday for our celebration of the beginning of the Eternal life of St Mary Our Lady. In the topsy turvy way of the Church calendar, we celebrate her arrival in heaven, some three weeks before the celebration of her birth, which we keep as our Patronal festival in September. In his sermon Father Stephen told us about the Events of Mary, a celebration in Lebanon where both Christians and Muslims, so recently waging a civil war against each other, come together and share a celebration of the life of St Mary, venerated in both religions, where all participants pray the Lords Prayer, and Muslim prayers together. The hope for the Middle East and for the world is surely to come together in prayer.
The choir is in recess at present so we sang a hymn during communion. There was coffee after the service.
