Pentecost

Pentecost [or Whitsunday] this year was celebrated on the 15th May. Pentecost means fifty days. Ascension is forty days after Easter and ten days later it is Pentecost. It is when the eleven remaining disciples received the gift of the Holy Spirit. Traditionally the colour of the flowers in church for this day represent the symbols of the Holy Spirit, they are white [ the dove] and flame colours [tongues of fire] Many thanks to the flower arranging team for decorating the church for this important festival. Also a huge thank you for your generous donations to the flower fund for this occasion.

Looking ahead

Wedding

Eileen and Stewart will be married here on Saturday 18th June and we will be arranging lots of flowers for this special day.

The Nativity of Saint John The Baptist is the 24th June. He is one of only two Saints [the other being the Virgin Mary] that are celebrated on their birthdays rather than their death. This year the Patronal Festival is on Sunday 26th June. The church will be decorated with lots of flowers for our special day.

Thank you

To the flower arranging team for all the work that they do.

To the church members for your continued support and kind donations of money for the flower fund.

God bless
