Edwina Griffin, Marriage and Family Life Coordinator for the Diocese of East Anglia reports:
On Saturday July 14th, 28 adults, 2 toddlers and one 14 week old baby enjoyed the first meeting of the Halesworth Family Group. This was not only a big event for the group but also for East Anglia as it is the only Family Group currently in existence! The group is predominantly made up of St Edmund’s parishioners; however non-Catholic partners were also warmly welcomed. Everyone brought a plate to share and with such generosity the table was groaning under the weight of food. We were also blessed with a gap in the constant rain so people managed to eat outside. I have no doubt that Jesus was in our midst as we broke bread together, laughed, chatted and got to know one another.
