Update from Andrew Down and family

We are all well and fast coming to the end of our time at Cuddesdon. We move to Exeter at the end of June to join St James’ church family and I am ordained on September 14th in Exeter Cathedral.

We have had a great Holy Week. For me is started with a visit to St James’ in Exeter. Maundy Thursday through to the Easter vigil, on Saturday, I helped with the services of the Sisters of the Community of St John the Baptist here at Cuddesdon. Lots of wonderful times together: the washing of feet, lying prostrate at the foot of the cross and the lighting of the Easter fire to name a few. As a family we joined the churches where we have been on placement for a Good Friday family craft morning and Easter day service including breakfast and champagne!! All in all it has been a very special Holy Week and start to Easter.

We wish you every blessing this Easter time.

Much love

Andrew, Claire, Charlotte and Joseph
