At the end of Mass on Sunday September 10, at the Church of Our Lady and King St Edmund in Hunstanton, Fr Michael Stokes presented the Pope’s Blessing to mark three special occasions. On June 15, Michael and Hillary Rhodes (on the right) celebrated their Diamond Jubilee of marriage. On July 25, Tom and Elizabeth Koning (in the centre) marked their Golden Anniversary of marriage. On Monday August 28, Sr Mary Gonçalves FDC (on the extreme left) pronounced her vows, making her Final Profession as a Religious Sister in the Daughters of Divine Charity. Pope Francis “invoked an abundance of divine graces” upon them all. The congregation was enthusiastic in its expression of congratulations.
