THE NEW STONE LECTERN
The stone Lectern, which will complete the re-ordering of the Sanctuary, and which is being given anonymously by two generous parishioners, will be put in place this coming week. The Bishop is coming to bless the work on Sunday December 18th, at an 11.0an Mass. The stonemasons will be working on Tuesday and Friday, and whilst the times of Lauds and Mass will remain the same as usual, there will be some disruption to our normal programme : there will not be Exposition and Benediction on Tuesday, and on Friday, Rosary will be in the Presbytery, and not in church.
