We met today at 10 am on a beautiful sunny morning for our Eucharist. The Celebrant was Father Roger, as Father Stephen is still away, but he returns on Tuesday.
This Sunday is celebrated as 'Good Shepherd' Sunday  and in his Sermon, Father Roger shared his experience of his time in a parish in Wales, where sheep farming was a major occupation, and went on to talk about the role of the shepherd, the value of sheep in Biblical times, and how this teaches us the Jesus as the Good Shepherd is our guardian and our guide through this life and the next.
The Choir sang Ave Verum in the setting by Edward Elgar, as the anthem. The Sunday School children and adults joined us for the Communion.
There was coffee after the service in the Rooms.

This Thursday at 7:30 there will be a service of Confirmation by Bishop Mark, the Bishop of Horsham. Candidates for Confirmation from St Mary's and St Peter's Selsey, and from Hunston Parish Church will be presented. All are welcome to come and support the candidates as they become  full adult members of the Church. There will be refreshments after the service.

We have a new family in the congregation!
