No 21 – 40 places to go to Mass

I have been challenged to go to Mass in 40 different places.  With everything else going on, this is going to be logistically difficult but a good chance to explore churches that I have not been to before.  On my 39th birthday I am going to start my challenges by going to Mass in Brighton at the Church where our friend Canon Kieron O’Brien is the parish priest.  Canon Kieron has walked our journey with us having baptised both the girls, supported us through their diagnosis, illness and deaths  and celebrated both girls funerals.

He was with us when Rebecca died and having visited Rachel just before she died, turned around when he got home to come straight back to us when she had died.  He is an amazing priest and an even better friend.  It is a privilege to be able to start my challenges by going to a Mass said by him.

The places that I have been to Mass are:

1 – St Joseph’s Brighton


2 – St Richard’s Church, Slindon

    It is high time you and John were here for a visit anyhow, so consider combining Mass at St.Mary of The Angels and lunch here at ours one Sunday (before Fr. Chris leaves, in Sept!)
