This afternoon...

...was a West Grinstead afternoon, at Our Lady of Consolation. Fr Bruno Witchalls celebrated, and preached on the importance of keeping the Cross in our minds, and looked forward to the Exaltation of the Holy Cross tomorrow.

As usual, tea was a very convivial affair, and very welcome on a surprisingly chilly afternoon, and it was good to catch up with some of those who had been to the Masses at OLR Eastbourne and St Mary Magdalene's Bexhill. Fr Bruno is soon to move from his current parish to St Mary Magdalene's, and we hope he has a great time there.

We also heard that Fr Goddard, the priest in charge of the shrine of Our Lady of Consolation has been very ill and is now convalescing, please say some prayers for his speedy recovery.

"Hi Annie,The thought struck me at WG yesterday how very much like catholics were like in penal times.There we were miles from anywhere because of our devotion for the old mass.Now the opposition to us is within how the English martyrs must weep in heaven."
