We celebrate our saint - St Mary the Virgin

3 Aug 2021, 8:45 p.m.

St Mary the Virgin, mother of our Lord, to whom our church is dedicated, is celebrated by the worldwide church  on 15th August each year.  We don't make a big fuss about it every year, but this year we shall, at our Sunday Eucharist at 09:20 on 15th August, when we  will think about her life and the crucial role she played in the birth and life of our Lord Jesus Christ.  On this occasion we are delighted to welcome the Archdeacon of Lindisfarne, the Very Revd Dr Catherine Sourbut Groves, to lead our worship.

Come along, share in our celebration, and learn more about St Mary.  As preparation, you might have a close look at all our stained glass windows and decide which of them speaks best to you about her.  Imagine how she felt after the visit from the angel Gabriel when he told her she was to the mother of our Lord!  If you wish, you can post your thoughts on that in one of the Longframlington Facebook groups.
