Our Patronal Festival for both churches is kept this year on Sunday 5th September, the Feast of the Nativity (birth) of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Haverhill will be decorated with extra flower arrangements, and this year we are looking forward to the return of more congregational singing, with parts of the service including the Gloria, Sanctus and Benedictus and Agnus Dei being sung again.
The vicar has recorded another 'What is...?' video explaining a little more about what a patronal festival is, why we keep one, and why it is an important moment in our community life. Take a look on YouTube.
