Rosary and Bench Blessing

Monday to Friday evenings at 7pm and Saturday at 1pm by the Peace Statue on the Promenade my parishioners feed the hungry they have been doing it for almost 20 years, sometimes as few as 10 turn up, especially in the winter, in the summer it can be over 70. For 18 years Ann Roberts did it, she died early this year, so today I went down to say a decade of the Rosary and bless a bench erected in her memory.
Some of the people who we feed are out of shot, they didn't want to photographed, most here are parishioners.
