A number of people at our church have asked that we have the occasional Eucharist according to the Book of Common Prayer. Mrs Carolyn Frewer has suggested that we celebrate St Alphege, whose day falls this Thursday, and St Teresa of Calcutta, in September.

St Alphege is the most wonderful saint to commemorate: he was born in Weston in the C12, and the new school on the old Ensleigh site, named after him, has a close association with St Mary’s.

We shall gather for a said Eucharist at 9am on Thursday 19th April.

Have a good week, and don’t forget the APCM after the service on Sunday (bring coffee).

Blessings, philip
