It’s a special day for Dad today as he and the other adults from our parish waiting to recieve the Sacraments of Initiation this Easter, will travel to St. Chad’s in Birmingham this afternoon for the Rite of Election.
Sadly, my children and I are unable to join him as we are still unwell and as Dad has such chronic lung problems we didn’t think it fair to expose him to all of us sick people all afternoon! (not that we really feel up to being there anyway)
I’m extremely dissapointed, but I know it will be a wonderful occassion for Dad and quite emotional I expect! Mum will be with him, who just 2 years ago was travelling there for her own participation in the Rite of Election ceremony.
Please do remember my Dad, Peter, in your prayers and all who will be taking part in the Rite of Election this day.
We’re all so proud of you Dad! Love you,
