Our New Fire, Vigil, Renewal of Baptismal Promises took place at St Augustines at 5.30 a.m. and afterwards we all adjourned to the Parish Hall for a sumptuous breakfast of Cereals, fruit juices, eggs, sausages, toast, marmalade and coffee or tea. The sausages made by our local butcher Paul was fantastic. Father Martin presided I played the organ
At 10.00 a.m. it was time for the Solemn Mass of the day which was concelebrated; I presided and Father Martin preached and lead the Renewal of Baptism Promises with me do the my favourite job – the sprinkling.Pamela led us in our prayer. Our choir was augmented for the anthem by Ann and Ruth. At the end of Mass all the children were presented with an Easter Egg whilst all the adults had a smaller individual egg. I was surprised and delighted when I was presented with a huge Egg by Father Martin which I will really enjoy. All our chocolate eggs were by the Meaningful Chocolate Company which supports Fair Trade.
Easter Day finished with Solemn Evensong & Benediction at which Father Martin presided and for which I played the organ.
