Fr Frank writes:
My Dear Friends,
On Thursday this week we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord. After the Resurrection, St Luke tells us, the risen Christ appeared to his disciples for 40 days before Ascending to the Eternal Father.
This Feast takes place within the Easter Season (which lasts until Pentecost) but is a Holy Day in its own right.
The two parishes each have two Masses, as much as is possible, to enable most if not everyone to be present. There is a Vigil Mass on Wednesday at Frinton beginning at 7.30pm. On Thursday, the Mass at Frinton is at 9.15am, and the two Masses at Dovercourt on that day are at 11.30am and 7.30pm.
May Our Risen, Ascended and Glorified Lord bless you now and always.

WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, PLEASE REMOVE ALL YOUR CLOTHES.
