Are you old enough to remember those May Processions of long ago, at Eccleston School, St. Joseph’s Home, and at St. Mary’s? We always sang this Hymn holding posies of Lily of the Valley, Forget-me-nots, Bluebells and any other blossoms we could find! This was everybody’s favourite Hymn and it was always sung with such gusto!


Jane Jackson, an expat Scot living in Australia, sent this wonderful version of "Bring Flowers of the Rarest” to her mum Mary Cameron who misses her. Let's unite in prayer listening to Jane's hymn for all those missing loved ones this month of May; for those gone before us and those we are missing due to the lockdown.
