Bishop Celebrates Role of Women in Bexhill

Bishop Kieran with CWL memebers plus Parish Clergy
A new Section of the Catholic Women's League was opened in September and celebrated with an inaugural Mass on October 3rd in St Martha's Church. Twenty three ladies of the parish joined the League and many more have made enquiries. The Mass was concelebrated by Bishop Kieran Conry, Fr Kevin Gaskin - CWL Chaplain for Arundel and Brighton, Fr. David Parmiter, Fr Bruno Witchells and Fr Seamus Hester.

National President Margaret Richards visited us, and along with the Bishop, presented new members with their badges and prayer cards. Our Branch President Sheila Dunbar, Branch Secretary Brenda Hilliam and Regional Representative Jill Sims, with several members from other Sections in the Branch, came along for the evening Mass.

Afterwards, a party was held in the church hall and Margaret Richards cut the celebration cake.
