Lighting up for the Licensing...
Autumn Occasions 06:
'Licensed for Liturgy'

The evening of Sunday, September 24th, 2006 saw the licensing, by the Bishop of Warrington, of Fr Neil Kelley, as Diocesan Adviser on Worship and Liturgy.

Our pictures show Bishop David preaching, and Fr Neil reciving his license, reading himself in and receiving the oil of anointing, before kneeling with other members of his team for blessing and commnissioning. Finally, a less solemn moment at the back of church before tucking in to the traditional bun-fight!

This very special occasion came at the end of a particularly busy weekend for the United Benefice. Friday 22nd saw the return of Fr Charles Billington, erstwhile vicar of St Faith's to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of his priesthood. CLICK HERE for the record of this event. Saturday night saw the traditional 'Last Night of the Proms' concert at St Mary's, replete with flags and a soprano soloist. CLICK HERE for that event.
