Welcome to Barry's Blog and my ramblings on various current events and family news.
Friday, 20 April 2012
Last Saturday, Martin, a college friend who is a widower, married Julia the widow of another college friend. The wedding was a small affair with just the families present. We went out to lunch with them on the Sunday and then went to Mass where they had a special blessing at the end of the service. It was a great day, wishing them all the best for their future together.
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for nearly 47 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was four in April 2017 and he now has a sister, Georgia, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my fifth year of ministry.
