On Sunday we celebrated the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady into Heaven. As always in mid August there were people away, although we were also joined by some who were taking their holidays. In recent years we have celebrated together as a parish with a BBQ after Mass. This year the solemnity was transferred to the Sunday, so after a little pondering, we held the BBQ after the main 10am Solemn Mass and a success it was. As always it was good for our Church community to sit, eat, and socialise one with another.
