Father Michael's 60th Jubilee Celebrations

Over 20 parishioners, along with the Bishop, Father Jonathan and nearly 40 other priests from the Diocese celebrated the 60th jubilee of Father Michael at Arundel Cathedral on 9th June 2022. The occasion was a stirring reminder of the many years of service that Father Michael and his fellow Jubilarians have given in parishes throughout the Diocese. It was also an opportunity to catch up with a much loved former priest of this parish. I am sure that everybody would like to wish Father Michael all the very best at this time. Thanks for everything Father Michael!

Our parish features in A&B e-news

We were delighted to read a news story in this week's issue of the Arundel & Brighton e-bulletin about our parish team of 30 walkers who are raising funds for CAFOD's Lent Walk against Hunger:

'Congratulations to parishioners from St Edmund’s in Godalming who have raised a wonderful £1,674 for CAFOD’s Walk against Hunger Lent challenge. This year’s Walk against Hunger focuses on Sierra Leone and a little girl called Lombeh, who was malnourished as a child.

Thirty parishioners, including Fr Jonathan and the Sisters from Ladywell Convent, walked, ran, and cycled to complete a total of 6,300 kilometres - the distance from Godalming to Free Town, the capital of Sierra Leone.  On Saturday 26th March some of the group got together for tea and cake at local Bistro Hectors on the Wey, to celebrate their achievement. They have since surpassed their target and completed 6,818 km! '

Well done everyone! And let's hope we can raise our total oto£2,000 by Easter.

Shared Supper on Solemnity of St Joseph

It was great to have the opportunity at last for a parish get-together! On Friday 18th March, following 7pm Evening Prayer and Benediction to mark the Solemnities of St Joseph and the Dedication of St Joseph’s Church, we gathered at Milford Village Hall for a shared supper and ‘open mic’ night. There was a wonderful selection of food and entertainment – including some humorous recitations by Francis, Angela, Fr Jonathan and Ian. The evening ended with a good old sing-song led by Dean and Ian on the ukes. Thank you to everyone who helped make this such an enjoyable evening.
