Crich Burial Ground Consecration

Crich Burial Ground Consecration

On a sunny February 2020 afternoon, Bishop Jan came to consecrate the large newly available section of Crich Parish Council's Burial Ground. It was a moving service, with the whole group pacing round the boundary of the new area saying psalms, and Bishop Jan saying a prayer at major stops such as corners.

Crich Infant School took part and enjoyed the service. Several members of the Parish Council attended, with Cllr Richard Walsh reading the Peition at the beginning and leading the thanks at the end.

Many thanks from the Parish Council go to Bishop Jan, to the School, to Rev Harold Dobbin, Martyn Offord and church members from St Mary's for their organising while the Vicar was on holiday. A special thank you, too, to the many helpers from St Mary's who worked hard to provide enjoyable hospitality and friendship in the church afterwards.
