SUNDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER

11.00AM

ST GREGORY'S MINSTER

 

 

Sadly I have to report that Bishop James Jones, the former Bishop of Hull and Liverpool, has had to withdraw as Guest Preacher at the St Gregory’s Patronal Festival on 1st September. Bishop James is seriously ill himself, needing an emergency fitting of a pacemaker this month, and also his young grandson has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. We hold Bishop James and his family in our prayers.

 

 Bishop Graham Cray, the retired Bishop of Maidstone has offered to preside at the Patronal Festival and his wife, Revd Jackie Cray  has kindly offered to be our Guest Preacher. I am enormously grateful that they are able to stand in at such short notice. I am very grateful to Bishop Graham and Revd Jackie for their generous offer and I am so glad to accept.  Revd Sue Binks
