May Fair at the School
The pupils of the School made a remarkably good thing of the May Fair they organised on Friday, May 20th, in the school premises. Everything was tastefully arranged and there was a great deal of interest shown by the Village. The purpose was to help World Refugee Year and a sum of £29 was earned by this means for the Refugees. We congratulate Mrs. Foster and the pupils on an excellent piece of work.
I would be glad if parishioners would revise their habits of attendance at Holy Communion. Very little spiritual gain can come from chance and widely separated attendances at any religious service — unless it be some kind of shock to one’s conscience. This is particularly true of the sacrament of Holy Communion which requires to be received regularly and relentlessly.
While I am writing of this service may I say that I think while we are in the new building we can revise our custom of ALL the com¬municants at the altar rail kneeling and rising together. There were good reasons for this in the old building, but with the length of the present rail, and the adequate room in the choir, there is no reason why we cannot adopt the usual practice of rising from our knees when the next person but one has communicated.
