Blessing of the Fisheries 2017

The Blessing of the Fisheries took place on Sunday 25th June 2017. The Right Reverend Norman Banks, Lord Bishop of Richborough, returned to our Parish to celebrate the Mass in the morning and to bless the Fisheries during a service on Folkestone Stade at 3.15 pm, following the traditional procession from St. Peter’s Church. The Worshipful Town Mayor of Folkestone led the procession of the Cinque Port Mayors, several of whom were present.

After a return procession, our new mosaic, created by Jo Letchford with help from all the parish community, was blessed by the Bishop and short service in the Church, a splendid refreshment was enjoyed by all!
