A Cross on the Glastonbury Thorn


Fr Paul Stacey was the second priest in charge of All Saints, from 1905 to 1917, and in later years served in Glastonbury, from whence came a gift of a Glastonbury Thorn. The Tree stands by the West Gate, the Savile Road entrance, and has blossomed beautifully this year, presenting us with a pink and white cross, as seen on the picture above.

We are in the midst of what seems to be another successful Art Exhibition, with plenty of visitors (and sales!), together with candles lit and prayers offered.

Earlier this week, I took part in the first meeting of the College of Canons of the new Diocese of Leeds: West Yorkshire and the Dales, in Wakefield Cathedral, as we dutifully, and prayerfully, elected our first Diocesan Bishop.
