Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday, and we were honoured by Bishop Gabriel’s last visit to Holy Trinity Church, Miyazaki before his retirement, together with his wife, Sumiko.
Bishop Gabriel has been very busy, making his last supervisory visit to Okinawa within the past week, and will be making his last visit as Bishop to St Stephen’s Church, Nobeoka next Sunday (Easter Sunday), his last day as Bishop of Kyushu. The following day, he takes up his new appointment as Senior Chaplain at Rikkyo University in Tokyo.

Bishop Gabriel’s popularity is such that several members of our congregation attended for the first time in quite a while. Unfortunately, some of our regular members were unable to come because of colds and other commitments.
