Canonical Visit

Update on 27th April: Visit to France has appeared on our diocesan website.

I have just had the pleasure of receiving a canonical visitation from my Ordinary, Bishop Damien Mead. He with Roy Hipkiss who is driving the car are presently touring France and will go on to Spain and Portugal before sailing back to England.

I made this surround for this crucifix many years ago after a visit to Bavaria. It is fixed to the wall of our house near the front door. It is sheltered by the protruding queue de gaie roof which is typical in Normandy.

Doubtlessly, more will be said on Facebook and our diocesan website.
