A Lovely Day...

I had a wonderful day today. Both the deacon and subdeacon made it to Blackfen without mishap, and so we were able to celebrate a Solemn High Mass. One of the families in the parish had done stirling work the evening before, clearing paths through the snow between the main road, the church and the halls. The UCM ensured that there was plenty of hot food for the party afterwards. The inclement weather earlier in the week meant that quite a few people who had intended to be there had to cancel at the last minute; however, there were plenty of people to help me celebrate another year in my vocation...

Thanks to everyone who helped make this such a special day!

Dear Mac, congratulations! So glad it was such a beautiful day for you. I wanted to be there, but on Friday night I was 'handed over' a job that a colleague couldn't do, on a stall at a Christmas Fair on Saturday. It was booked and paid for, and a 'gift horse' for me as I am on Jury service through till Christmas :( so I haven't much 'business time' till that's over with.
It was a First Saturday too, so I'm sorry on both counts that I wasn't able to be there.
Maybe next year....
God bless you and protect you throughout the year ahead.
