Walsingham Festival, St James' Church, Cleveland Ohio

The Vicar General, Fr Damien Mead, visited the USA in June to fulfil two speaking engagements in the ACC. On Saturday 7th June he was the Guest Speaker at the Annual Walsingham Festival at St James Church, Cleveland, Ohio. During the afternoons devotions Fr Crume, Rector of St James, asked Fr Mead to assist in the 'sprinkling' of water from the Holy Well, which Fr Mead had brought with him from the Shrine in Norfolk. After the Festival the good folk of St James gathered in the Church Hall where a special cake, with a Union Jack and the words "God save the Queen" iced upon it was presented to Fr Mead and the 1st verse of the British National Anthem was sung.
