Ingredients for a successful parish celebration:
Something to celebrate - The 75th Anniversary of our parish
The presence of a daughter of one of the founding families of the parish
A Bishop - Bishop of Arundel and Brighton, Bishop Kieran Conry,

A church full of smiling parishioners
A choir in splendid voice
A groaning table full of tasty food
A well-stocked bar
A delicious cake
Plenty of helping hands
Put them all together and you have the perfect fool-proof recipe for our parish celebration today.
And just for good measure, add in a parishioner who is also celebrating a 'special birthday' today. Happy Birthday Freda!
