We are delighted celebrate our “Centenarian” parishioner in Minehead/ Sacred Heart Parish recently. 

Pictured are Mrs Helen Dowley and Fr Michael Thomas just after a special Mass which was celebrated in Eastleigh Residential Home in Minehead.

Assisted by myself Deacon David Croucher, who regularly visits the Home’s residents, Fr Michael presented Mrs Dowley with a framed Papal Blessing to commemorate her 100th birthday in October, after the Mass . With a lively mind, she was delighted both by the Holy Mass and her Papal Blessing, reminding us that she was on the last ship to leave Singapore before the Japanese invasion .
