Ecumenical Developments

From last March 2016, La Chapelle has given hospitality to the Orthodox Church (Roumaine).  Our church is normally used once each month on a Saturday, when their priest comes and celebrates the Eucharist for his Christian group. The worship extends from 9 am until 12 noon, with refreshments!  We wish them well as they draw together the Orthodox Christians in our area.  Pope Francis met the Russian Orthodox leader, Patriarch Kirill, during his visit to Cuba last February.

Special Projects in 2014

New linen has been obtained for the altars at La Chapelle and Bocé, and we have also acquired some splendid altar frontals and lectern falls; a few produced by the artistic Slabbinck manufacturers of Belgium.  These adornments provide the churches with an atmosphere of devotion, besides declaring beautifully the colours and themes of the various liturgical seasons.  Thanks to Avis Hughes and Pamela Johnson who help us with their sewing skills—much appreciated.
