Visiting and Supporting the Sick

Afternoon Tea at Sussex Heritage Centre
The Sussex Heritage Centre, Arundel, hosted a New Year's Tea for 30 of St Richard's, Chichester parishioners on the afternoon of January 9th. Sandwiches, home made scones and cakes were enjoyed by all in the spacious, bright and airy dining room.

St Richards Church have a Visiting and Support Group with a team of people who regularly visit the sick and elderly in their parish and help each other to grow in the love of God. They hold a regular monthly Event where a light lunch is provided followed by a varied programme of interesting and entertaining talks. Coffee mornings, and visits to local attractions and tea outings are arranged, like the one on this occasion, at the Heritage Centre.

Fr Paul Turner and Fr Andrew Moss actively support the group, arranging healing masses with the group for the sick and visiting parishioners in the many local Nursing and Care Homes and offering Holy Communion.

Maria and Dominic Whitehouse, recently set up the Centre to offer people the opportunity to enjoy the spiritual, cultural and wonderful natural history of the area. From heritage holidays, retreats, B&B, to varied function facilities, this is a marvellous place to stay, standing in partly wooded gardens with the valley rising up beyond the Centre.
