North Downs Pastoral Area Mass


The sun shone and the people gathered on Sunday 11th July, and it was a marvellous day. The occasion was an open-air mass for the four parishes of the North Downs Pastoral Area.

The people from  the parishes of Blessed Hugh, Faringdon, Our Lady of Lourdes, Hungerford, Sacred Heart, Lambourn, and St.John Vianney, Wantage came together at Maddle Farm, Upper Lambourn, to share their Sunday Mass, which was concelebrated by Father Leslie Adams and Canon Peter Turbitt.

After the mass, with inspiring music led by a group with members from all four parishes, lots of people stayed to enjoy being together for a picnic lunch, in this beautiful location.

It was a wonderful opportunity to strengthen links within the Pastoral Area.
