High Sheriff’s Gift

High Sheriff’s Gift

Dr Tim Chambers, the out-going High Sheriff of the City and County of Bristol, came to St Bernadette’s for the 10.30am Mass on Easter Sunday morning. At the end of the Mass, Tim came to the lectern to thank the Parish of St Bernadette’s for ‘lending’ Fr Christopher to him for his year as High Sheriff.

Fr Christopher acted as Tim’s chaplain for the year but brought the parish along with him so that the parish was supporting Tim in his role with their prayers and their encouragement.

Tim was at St Bernadette’s from time to time throughout the year and stayed behind after Mass on each occassion to talk to the folk in the hall. As a thank you gift, Tim presented the Parish with a Bristol Blue plate engraved with the words “Parish of the High Sheriff 2009-2010” and presented Fr Christopher with a similar plate engraved “Chaplain to the High Sheriff 2009-2010“.

As a parish we were priviledged to play an active role in supporting someone of ‘royal appointment’ and someone who played such a prominent role in working to support the whole our city and our county.
