Lesnes Abbey Procession

Many thanks to George Murrell for these photos from yesterday's Lesnes Abbey Procession. Despite the rain, it was good to see some people from the parish there. Because of the inclement weather, we had to shorten the procession but it was still a great occasion for the two Deaneries of Bexley and Greenwich. Archbishop Kevin McDonald preached the sermon and gave Benediction.

Here we are first of all with the Thamesmead Tower blocks in the background:
