For the Feast of Christ the King, we had a beautiful Solemn High Mass, followed by a procession of the Blessed Sacrament during which the Holy Rosary was recited. We were truly blessed with glorious weather for such a beautiful procession. In the evening, we had Solemn Vespers continued by Adoration and Benediction and to finalise we had a little firework display. It was a wonderful Feast Day, enjoyed and participated by many faithful!

On the 23rd, Monsignor’s second day, he celebrated Solemn High Mass at the Shrine Church of St. Walburge and then later in the evening, we had Solemn Vespers and Adoration with Benediction. We thank Monsignor for his kindness and generosity to the Apostolates during his visit!
