St Mark’s Parish Debutante Ball – 8 September 2018
Seven debutantes, their partners, two senior maids, a flower girl and page boy, and two junior maids were presented to Richmond Valley Councilor Sam Cornish and the Rector of Casino, Rev Canon Judy Edwards, by Matron of Honour, Pam Sullivan. Guests enjoyed a sit down meal and danced on late into the evening.
Today was the celebration of Palm Sunday and the start of Holy Week. The altar and Church were adorned in Palm Leaves and red was the colour of the day.
Unfortunately wet weather during the week put a bit of a dampener on the start of the 7.00 am service as it was too wet under foot to process around the church with our palms. However at the 9.00 service the palms were held high as we sang our way from the pergola through the courtyard then down the main street back to the church.
Rev Cannon Judy led a moving and inspirational service challenging us to take the journey into Holy week without putting our own expectations on God.
Please note the dates and times for the services during Holy week and Easter day. We welcome and would love to see all members of the community that would like to join us over the Easter period.
Many blessings for the Season.
