A Message from Fr Paul Seaman
 

Dear Friends,

Did you know that Saturday 16th June is Sussex Day? This date is a day in the year to especially celebrate the rich heritage and culture of our county. This year it seems particularly pertinent as we have just celebrated the marriage of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.  This particular date was chosen in fairly recent times because it is the day that the church has honoured St. Richard of Chichester, the Patron Saint of Sussex and a much loved bishop of Chichester.

We have been enjoying some beautiful weather during May after weeks of miserable days. Hopefully this will continue and give us more opportunities  to get out and about in the stunning Sussex countryside or to soak up the delights of the Sussex coast. There is a tendency to overlook those places of interest and natural beauty that are on our doorsteps in preference for places further afield. Why not start ticking off some of these local places in the coming weeks and, at the same time, help our local economy? It is so easy to take it all for granted because it is always there!

Sussex Day reminds us to make the most of our surroundings and to find out more about our local environment. Why not go to our library and borrow one of the books on our local history? Or find out more about our village, our historic parish church and how things have evolved in the way they have?

Let's support all those groups and organisations who help us value and celebrate our local culture and heritage and thank God that we live in lovely 'Sussex by the sea'!

 

With prayers and blessing to you all

Fr. Paul Seaman  (Rector of Pulborough)
