Fr James marks his 25th priestly anniversary

Retired East Anglian priest Fr James Fyfe has celebrated the 25th anniversary of his ordination with a Mass, a Papal Blessing and a cake, reports Stuart Grant.

Monday November 20, the Feast of St Edmund, saw a very special celebration take place in the Parish of Hunstanton.  At mid-day,  Mass was celebrated by Fr James Fyfe with the assistance of six fellow priests in honour of the 25th  anniversary of his ordination. At the end of the Mass,  Fr James was presented with a special Papal Blessing by Fr Michael Stokes  to recognise his ministry.

Fr James had been Parish Priest at Hunstanton for many years and the local congregation were joined by a number of people from the Parishes of St Ives, OLEM in Cambridge and Wisbech where Fr James had also served before his retirement.

Following the special Mass, all present enjoyed a lovely buffet lunch at the church where Fr James ceremonially cut a special cake made by one of our parishioners to mark this day.
