Gillian Trow, Fred Marsden’s daughter writes: we would like to say a huge thank you for the love and support you have given to dad and his family over this difficult time. Thank you for the kind messages of sympathy and sharing some of your precious memories that you have of dad. It was wonderful that so many of you were able to attend his funeral and help us give him the send of that he would have loved. A special thank you to Pam for reading Footprints so beautifully, and to Ben who was with us on dad’s final days. Lastly thank you Tony for your support guidance.

If you’ve not returned your St. Michael’s Stewardship commitment could you do it by Palm Sunday?


If you know anyone who is ill or would like a visit, please let the Vicar know.
