My word - this photo makes me feel old!
Following the Mass we had a party in the Hall, with around 100 people sitting down to a three-course meal. The girl on the left was born on the day of my ordination - 5 July 1997, and she was the first person I baptised (on 4 January 1998). She is sitting next to her older sister.
I have baptised 31 people in all during my 11 years as the Deacon of Ham, and it has been good seeing many of them growing up in the life of the Church.
