|Sutton Park parishioners eat Kenyan Meal|
After the cookery class parishioners attended Mass at which the bidding prayers had been contributed by the sisters’ community in Kenya. Photos had also been exchanged between the parish and the Kenyan Community.
Terence Nagle, a parishioner commented, “The cookery class, followed by the Mass and delicious Kenyan meal, was an excellent way to raise awareness of Kenyan culture and the needs of the elderly poor in that country”. Karen Pierre, Rosemary Keenan and Angela Vickerman who helped the sisters all agreed that they had learnt a great deal from the sisters’ culinary skills and were greatly impressed by their ability to talk about Kenyan life and the work of their community through food.
Fr. Brian Taylor at St Edward the Confessor parish said, “The Benedictine Sisters and all those with whom they work, are filled with a happiness that spreads wherever they go. The meal was certainly a happy event."
