Collett Park Festival

11th June 2022

St Michael’s once again took part in this annual event in Collett Park, next to the church.  Our stall provided an opportunity to raise our profile and funds for the parish.  We had a profitable ‘Every One wins a Prize’ tombola and a Paperback and Media stall.  Thanks go to the volunteers who manned the stall during a long day.

Crowning of Our Lady

During the morning Mass on Sunday 16th May, we honoured Our Blessed Lady, Queen of Heaven with  a crown of fresh flowers.  This beautiful little ceremony, traditionally held in churches during the month of May, reminds us of Our Lady’s many titles, one of which is Queen of Peace.  We turn to her especially and seek her protection at this time of conflict in the world.

 

 

 

 

  Knitted Crib

 

A lovely set of nativity figures knitted by two parishioners.  It was blessed after Mass by Fr Dominic and will be offered for sale on St Michael’s stall at the annual Diocesan Glastonbury Pilgrimage on Sunday 10th July 2022  to raise funds for the parish.

 


Palm Sunday Procession

On a bright and sunny morning around fifty parishioners assembled in the garden behind the church for the start of the 9am Mass. The Palm Sunday liturgy was led by Fr Dominic, beginning under the fine oak tree before processing, waving palms and singing, into the church for the long reading of the Passion of Our Lord.
