Reflections from August 17

Daphne Gilbert was a dedicated member of the Mothers' Union right up to the day she passed away, she had been an active member of St Mary's MU but had become a diocesan member once the group had closed. Daphne's funeral service was beautiful and she wanted the collection taken at the service to be donated to the Chelmsford Mothers' Union.

Lynda Booth, our new evening group leader must have spent many hours making sure we utilised our brains as we were faced with four different quizzes, we even had to work while we ate, so it seems that Lynda wasn't going to allow us to get in the least bit lazy or bored, we literally didn't have the time!

Hundreds gathered in Chelmsford Cathedral for the Funeral Eucharist of Bishop John Wraw, It was a very long, yet inspiring service that will be remembered for many years ahead, which is just what Bishop John would have wanted.

We are delighted to announce that Brenda Sheath will be commissioned as Branch Leader in our September service at 2pm in the North Chapel on Thursday September 14th 17 as I stepped down as Branch Leader in February and Brenda kindly accepted the role. Sheilah Girgis-Hanna

St Anthony of Padua is the patron saint of lost things, the one we go to when we lose something. Since his death, Christians have invoked St Anthony to find all manner of lost items, not to mention a missing person or two.

The famine in Yemen is now threatening over seventeen million people; a great proportion of them are suffering from malnutrition. The famine is being compounded by a massive outbreak of Cholera. The Impact on civilians shows that they have borne the brunt of the fighting. Leading to one of the world's worst famines. Let us pray for those who are suffering in Yemen
