My Bishop invited me to preach at his Mass at our Pro-Cathedral in Painters Forstal near Faversham, Kent. It was Easter IV, Sunday 29th April 2018, and I expanded on the theme of the need of the Ascension of Christ for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
This was my very first time at the new church. I had seen many photos of the work and the finished church. I was truly impressed. Another “first” is Andy Hall (far left in the second photo) serving Sunday Mass for the first time. With Andy Hall, was Rev’d Rich Mulholland the parish deacon, Bishop Damien Mead, myself and Roy Hipkiss.
