Hail the day that sees Him rise!

On Thursday, May 5th, the Holywell Community were pleased to welcome the people of Abergavenny Anglican Churches Together into their monastic house for a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, to mark the Feast of the Ascension. 13178039_1142184985825576_6045357382819481930_n

Over forty people packed into the garden of our house to partake in a service celebrated by the Rt Rev’d Dr Richard Fenwick, Bishop of St Helena (whose Diocese includes the Ascension Islands), with assistance from Fr Mark (Deaconing the Mass) and Sr Amy (Subdeaconing the Mass) – the rest of the Community took active serving roles within the liturgy – Br Michael acting as Thurifer/MC and Brs Samuel and Adrian as acolytes.

We were also glad to welcome Michael Woodward – Michael joins us regularly for our monastic offices and, as his day job, works as a professional photographer. He very kindly took photographs during the service, a selection of which can be viewed by navigating to this link.
