We celebrated the great feast of Corpus Christi on Saturday 18 June 2022 with a Solemn Mass, Procession of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and Benediction.
With Corpus Christi we give special thanks to the Lord Jesus for the inestimable gift of his Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist. The procession which traditionally takes place on this day is a token of our faith in the Lord who is always present with us in the Sacrament of the Altar.

Over the long weekend we hosted a few events and services as well, bringing the wider town community and our regular church family to come together in giving thanks to God for the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Our town was truly blessed with so many community events taking place of the big bank holiday week to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of the Queen.
Many thanks to Cllr Yvonne Farrell, the Town Mayor, for joining us on the Thanksgiving Service on Pentecost Sunday. Also, a big thank you to our church volunteers and to all those who have made these celebrations possible.
