Our Lady & St Francis, Rochester, celebrated their Patronal Festival on Saturday 9th October 2010. The guest preacher was Canon Don Walker Obl/OSB priest in charge of St Bede’s, Thames Ditton and the celebrant was Fr Raymond Thompson the Parish Priest. Mr Barry Capper served. Numbers were down on previous years however it was good to see Fr Thompson restored to the parish after the serious surgery he has endured – please continue to keep him in your prayers.
