A Message from Fr Paul Seaman (June)
 

Dear Friends,

‘June is bustin’ out all over’

Some of you will recognise these as the opening words of a song from the musical ‘ Carousel’. It seems to sum up not only the many natural and colourful delights of the season but also a month of major celebrations!

The month begins with the holiday weekend in which we celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The Pulborough Community Partnership along with the Sports and Social Club have organised a family picnic on the recreation ground on Friday 3rd and the churches are hosting an Open Air Service on the East Glebe Field, Old Rectory Lane, (weather permitting) on Sunday 5th at 6pm. Other groups of residents and community organisations are also arranging social get togethers so it should be an enjoyable few days with something for everyone to join in with.

Later in the month we mark ‘Sussex Day’ on 16th June when we celebrate everything that is good about this wonderful county that we call home. The Pulborough Society have organised a series of events on that day based in the Village Hall. (Please see the printed programme available throughout the village) This day was chosen as it is the date the Church celebrates the Patron Saint of Sussex: St Richard of Chichester. He was a 13th century bishop of Chichester who was well respected as a faithful pastor of the people of Sussex, many of whom took him to their hearts as they recognised the presence of Christ in his work and ministry.

So this June we have more to celebrate than ever, both as citizens of Britain and residents of Sussex. With the many troubles and concerns facing the world at this time, it is good to have an opportunity to pause from the daily routines. We remember how blest we are, despite all we are facing at this time as a nation and as an international community.

May God bless us all as we celebrate together.

With my prayers and best wishes,
Fr Paul Seaman (Rector of Pulborough)
