Today I celebrated the Parish Mass at St. Paul’s, Goodmayes. The service began with The Asperges. In my sermon I highlighted the saying of Jesus “I am the Resurrection and the Life. If anyone believes in me, even though he dies he will live and whoever lives and believes in me will never die”. I pointed out how this verse had been an inspiration and gave an example in the life of Robert Schumann. Following the Angelus, during the Notices, volunteers for the Washing of Feet at the Maundy Solemn Mass were sought at which I am also presiding.
After Mass I headed back to St. Augustine’s for the well attended Annual Vestry and Parochial Meeting.
