Farewell to Fr Richard - From Lewes to Horsham

Bruce Bryne reports from Lewes:
"Following his move from St Pancras, Lewes to St John the Evangelist Parish at Horsham, Father Richard Biggerstaff returned to Lewes to officially bid farewell. He was welcomed by a full capacity church and led the parishoners in the recitation of the Holy Rosary followed by Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Father Richard thanked the parish for their friendship and devotion during the special time he spent at St Pancras. Everyone then retired to the Wood Room for refreshments and heard tributes paid by Eleanor Austin for Father Richard's vision, dynamics, commitment and memorable journey he has taken the our church over the past six years. Various gifts were presented including a farewell cake baked especially for the occasion by Claire Humphrey."
