The look of love in Richmond Hill

As part of their endeavours to draw the church and community together, St Saviour’s, Richmond Hill gave couples the chance to renew their wedding vows at a special service just before Valentine’s Day.

Interim parish priest, Father Darren Percival, says, “Six couples came for a blessing, and one couple renewed their vows. It was an uplifting afternoon - light hearted but with real meaning and a lovely celebration of the commitment the couples have made to each other.

"We all enjoyed it and we got through a lot of cake and Prosecco afterwards!"

The event was open to couples who got married at St Saviour’s as well as those who’d tied the knot elsewhere.

Darren adds, “Since I arrived here last April we’ve been trying to bring the church and the community together, and this was part of that.

“We don’t do a lot of weddings these days but I got in touch with everyone who had their banns of marriage read here recently.

“We hope to do it again, and I’d also like to try a wedding fayre, as the church is beautiful and this could be another way of engaging with the mission of LS9."
