Alnmouth Friary Jubilee Celebrations

Br Desmond Alban writes:
The brothers at Alnmouth celebrated their 50th Anniversary on the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 15th August 2011. Somehow we sat over 100 people in the chapel in reasonable comfort, and the enthusiastic singing was swollen too by a number more guests in the narthex beyond. We celebrated with a festal Sung Eucharist at which Bishop Frank White (Assistant Bishop of Newcastle) presided and Brother Samuel preached. (Click here for the text of the sermon). The congregation was made up of many friends, old and young, and the lovely weather allowed everyone to enjoy a picnic lunch in the friary garden. Indeed, the main celebrations ended with Evening Prayer in the open air, just before we welcomed the new guests arriving that day for business as usual.
