St Winefrid's Well

Each year the LMS organise a pilgrimage to Holywell in North Wales.  Two years ago I was celebrant, this year Fr Ian O'Shea, a fellow Liverpool Priest, offered the Mass while I was Subdeacon. Canon Amaury Montjean from the Institute's Shrine of Ss Peter, Paul & Philomena was the Deacon (although he had to return home to the Dome immediately after the Mass for Vespers, so he was summarily replaced for the procession to the shrine that you can see in the photographs!  St Winefride always seems to bless us with exceptionally warm weather and it was certainly warm under those vestments!  We were treated to some fine music and as usual, a warm welcome from the pilgrims and Kevin Jones the LMS Representative for Wrexham. Thanks to the Priests and Brothers of the Society of Divine Vocations, who run the Shrine.  Apologies to anyone I didn't get to say hello to.
(Thanks to Mike Barnstall for the photographs.)

A truly uplifting - and hot – afternoon, Fr.

All credit to you, Fr O'Shea and Canon Montjean for staying on your feet in your vestments in that heat!

Thank you.
