Our Sunday Eucharist on January 4 was much enhanced when Mary Lister (née Mary Parry Lewis) and James Henry Stafford Lister celebrated sixty years of marriage by reaffirming their wedding vows in the presence of their children and grandchildren.
They were married in St Andrew and St Teilo’s Church on December 24 by the Revd Percival Jones. Mary was the third generation of her family to be married here, her mother and grandmother were too and she still worships regularly at St Michael’s.
We are truly blessed with a wonderful family; a son, two daughters and their respective spouses and six lovely grandchildren.
The service was specially devised by the Revd Caroline Downs. I was so impressed by it that my wife and I have decided to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary in 2016 in the same way!
