In May we welcome back the Bishop of St Helena as our preacher for Ascension Day and on May 8th the ACS General Secretary.
Bishop Richard of St Helena will be the Celebrant and Preacher at the Ascension Day Eucharist (May 5th) in the grounds of the Holywell Community House. There will be no Eucharist celebrated in any of the Abergavenny Anglican Churches that day as we come together as one family in this one place. “It is great to have Bishop Richard with us on the Feast of the Ascension, not only because he is an old friend, but because his Diocese covers Ascension Island.” says Canon Mark Soady, Vicar, welcoming the news.
Three days later we will welcome back Fr Darren Smith SSC, The General Secretary of the Additional Curates Society as our Preacher at the 11am Choral Eucharist on Sunday, May 8th.
Fr Mark said, “We are very grateful for the support we receive from the ACS as a Parish and as the Holywell Community . ACS play a vital role in nurturing and supporting vocations”.
