Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 27th May, 2018)
It was a moving occasion. Service of Benediction and the May Crowning not seen for many years at St. Patrick's Church..
I wonder if I might mention an Exibition at The Museum of Wigan Life (the old library) regarding the Whit Monday Waking Day , the last one was 50 years ago on the 3rd of June 1968. It includes some old films and hundreds of photographs,it's well worth a visit.
The opening times are Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday,Saturday 9am-2pm. Thursday,Friday 2pm-5pm.
It was like old times inside church - packed to the rafters! Many old parishioners there who I hadn't seen for years.
good to see walking days still exist

Wonderful occasion enjoyed by so many. Great to see the parishioners, church and school coming together to make St Patrick's a vibrant parish and community once again.
