Paul’s Farewell

On Sunday 13th January 2013, the congregation of St Mary’s said farewell to Paul, our Curate for 3 1/2 years before he goes off to be incumbent of the Parish of Water Orton, north-east of Birmingham.  The occasion was marked with gifts and a bring and share lunch.  It was a good time enjoyed by many.

“I have been so grateful and touched by the way you have marked important occasions in my life over the past three and a half years, including my two ordinations, first presiding at the Eucharist, and even my 40th birthday. I was overwhelmed by your generosity in my leaving gift and for the messages of goodwill received, together with the lunch provided on my final Sunday. The time I have spent with you has been a real earning process for me but more than that it has been a time when I have felt accepted and enjoyed the company of so many of you, and your generous hospitality. All good things have to come to an end but I will always have special memories of my time with you at St. Mary Magdalene’s.” Paul
