Jubilee party, international Mass, garden praise

Latest news from across the Diocese of East Anglia includes a Jubilee party, an international Mass and Celebrate East Anglia.

A Jubilee Afternoon Tea Party was organised at St George’s in Norwich by a group of five scouts and explorers and one leader from the 17th Norwich St George’s Scout Group who have been selected to attend The World Scout Jamboree in South Korea next summer.

The group have to raise the money themselves and the tea party was a great success for them. Over 60 parishioners and friends including Fr Sean Connolly and Sr Mary Richards attended the afternoon with plenty of home-made sandwiches, scones and cakes with music and dance from years gone by.

The event’s main organiser was Helen Doherty whose son Alex along with Evie, Connor and Emily will be going on the trip. Their families also helped with the event along with leaders and executive committee and over £600 was raised by the event towards the Korea trip.

An International Mass was held at Sacred Heart and St Margaret Mary in Dereham on Pentecost Sunday (June 5).

Following the 11am Mass, Fr Jaylord Magpuyo had asked for people to bring traditional food from their countries to share, at the Convent of COLW in Dereham, for an afternoon of community and celebration of Pentecost.   

Some participants (pictured below) dressed up in national costume including Myrna Kemp and her friend Blanche, and Deacon Martin Sanderson and his wife who came as Guardsmen to coincide with the Queen’s 70th Anniversary. Sr Gabriella, also pictured below, was a great host.

Celebrate East Anglia has issued an invitation to join an afternoon of Praise and Worship on the Lawn at Capel St Mary near Ipswich on Saturday June 18. Entitled Receiving Blessing, the afternoon will include fun for all the family, swimming and games and guests are invited to bring a picnic and a chair.
