1. BISHOP’S VISIT & CONFIRMATIONS
We are grateful to the Right Reverend Michael Campbell, Bishop of Lancaster, for his visit to Saint Walburge’s to confirm 6 adults and 20 young people and to celebrate Pontifical Low Mass. Sincere thanks also to the Saint Philip Neri Choir, under the direction of Rosemarie Darby, and to organist Christian Spence and trumpeter Graham Hickey for the splendid music; and also to our dedicated volunteers who cleaned the church, prepared the beautiful flowers and organised the excellent reception. Certainly a day to remember — and a fitting way to celebrate the first anniversary of the creation of the Shrine!
