FELLOWSHIP OF SAINT BIRINUS AWARDS
Triple congratulations! to Jeanette Barrington and Glenys and Brian Gray for their award of membership of the Fellowship of Saint Birinus by the Bishop of Dorchester for their service in the community over many years. To date the Fellowship has some 111 members within the Dorchester area. Those who have given outstanding service as a church member both in church and in the wider community are invited to become members. Each new member of the Fellowship receives a certificate and a small lapel badge to mark their entry into it. These are a way of showing honour for a job well done. Jeanette, Glenys and Brian will be "welcomed in" on 21st September at Dorchester Abbey.
The picture shows Glenys, Jeanette and Brian with Revd Canon Ian Cohen who announced their awards at the Vicarage Garden Party.
VICARAGE GARDEN PARTY
The weather stayed (mostly) dry for the Vicarage Garden Party at which the PCC entertains those who have actively supported the church's work in the community during the past year. The cakes and Pimms were delicious and a very relaxed atmosphere was enjoyed by all. Many thanks to all who helped with catering for the event.
ORDINATION OF LEE GABEL
Nine members of St Mary's congregation travelled to Lincoln Cathedral to support Lee Gabel at his ordination as Deacon by the Bishop of Lincoln, the Rt Revd Christopher Lowson, on Sunday 29th June. A total of nineteen deacons were ordained and spontaneous applause followed the new Deacons as they processed out of the Cathedral at the end of the service. Lee now begins his ministry as Curate in the parish of Frodingham and New Brumby.
FRIENDS STRAWBERRY TEA
This was another very enjoyable afternoon at which Friends were entertained with strawberries and cream, cakes and tea in the colourful surroundings of the garden at the Great Barn. Many thanks to all who helped.
Congratulations and many thanks to all who took part in the sponsored knit. This raised an amazing £1040 for the Conservation and Refurbishment Project. Well done!
