Bishop Christopher’s visit to St. Blasius

On     Sunday,     February     4th     2018     we     were honoured   to   have   Bishop   Christopher   Foster   as our      Celebrant      at      our      service      of      Parish Communion for our Patronal Festival.   The     church     was     beautifully     decorated     with flowers     in     the     colour     associated     with     Saint Blasius,       Cinnabar       or       scarlet       and       our congregation    of    100    was    boosted    by    support from   friends   from   St   John,   Sandown,   our   Town Mayor,   Jon   Gilbey,   Councillor   Richard   Priest   and Mrs     Anne     Springman.      Bishop     Christopher, assisted    by    Tony    and    the    Bishop's    Chaplain, Richard     Wyld,     led     a     relaxed     and     enjoyable service.
Our     readings     and     prayers     were     led     very confidently   by   two   students   from   the   St   Blasius Church    of    England    Primary    Academy    and    our choir   was,   as   always,   in   fine   voice   and   treated   us to   an   excellent   rendition   of   the   anthem,   the   Lord is    My    Shepherd    with    a    delightful    solo    from Emma.
The    service    reflected    very    positively    on    our church.     After    the    service    three    of    our    church family   had   their   photograph   taken   with   Bishop Christopher   and   Tony.    This   was   in   recognition   of the    service    on    July    5th,    2014    when    Bishop Christopher    christened    and    confirmed    Sandra and   Emma,   and   confirmed   Zinnia   at   a   service   at Portsmouth Cathedral.
