Some Good News, for a change

On Sunday 29th March, as part of the Re-dedication of England as the Dowry of Mary, Fr. Christopher Warren celebrated a Holy Hour in Saint Mary's Church, Hexham.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and associated restrictions, Fr Christopher had to celebrate this Service in an empty church, but thanks to the skills of a small team of volunteers, the Holy Hour was streamed live, via the internet, to many, many parishioners of the Heavenfield Partnership and far beyond.

As you can see from the attached photograph, during the Prayer of Entrustment, the sun burst through the church window and shone onto Fr. Christopher and the Sanctuary. We can take this as a sign that God is looking down on us; let us pray that he will guide us safely through these difficult, unprecidented times.
