Bishop Alan blesses new stained glass windows

Bishop Alan celebrated Mass at the Montana Care Home at Great Barton, near Bury St Edmunds on November 20, the Feast of St Edmund.

The home is run by the Grace and Compassion Benedictines and Sr Thaya Moses (OSB), Sister Superior and Manager, said: "We had a memorable day on the Feast of St Edmund when we welcomed Bishop Alan, who celebrated a holy and beautiful Mass for us, at which Ann Murray our dear friend and benefactor was confirmed.

"The Bishop’s Secretary, our Fr Brian and Deacon Alan concelebrated with him, and we felt it was a lovely gathering of friends.

"Bishop Alan blessed four stained glass windows, donated in memory of Ann’s late husband Michael, and beautifully designed for us by Auravision. We greatly enjoyed the bishop’s company and it was very good of him to go round and talk to all our residents, including those who are bedridden, and give them his blessing. It was a privilege to have him with us, we found him so approachable, and we had a lovely meal together after Mass."
