On 12th August the Parish gathered with Fr. Mark, his Dad and invited guests to celebrate Fr. Mark’s 50th birthday. It was a very enjoyable afternoon for everyone present which Fr. Mark found an incredibly moving and humbling experience.
Fr. Mark writes;
“A Parish is nothing without its people and that was evident as you joined together, sharing your gifts and talents, to make the day memorable
I would like to especially thank my Dad and Elizabeth, the Parish Ladies Guild and Jeff for co-ordinating the afternoon. My guests and I were impressed by the amount of time and effort taken in preparing the Parish Centre for the occasion with birthday banners, table decorations, balloons etc.; organising a special birthday cake and buffet reception.
Also to everyone who sent cards and gifts; who attended the party and brought a plate of food – thank you!
Finally THANK YOU once again from the bottom of my heart for everything you did to enable me to celebrate this milestone in style!
It was a joy to celebrate with all of you, whom I dearly love, I will cherish this amazing day for many years to come.
May the Good Lord continue to bless you abundantly with His endless love.”
