Holy Trinity Blessing on Sunday 27 May 2018

On Sunday 27 May, I joined my colleagues from Shaw and Crompton at Holy Trinity Church in Shaw for the blessing of the Lychgate, wall and railings.  It was an extremely lovely service with the Bishop of Middleton in attendance, the May Queen with her entourage, as well as the Girls Brigade.

I want to thank everyone at Holy Trinity for the warm welcome and giving me the privilege of cutting the ribbon.

After the blessing we all went into the church hall for a lovely luncheon and Bishop Mark kindly gave me his “hat”.  I felt very blessed.
