Churches working together

AS you know, the parish priest of the Roman Catholic Church in Wisbech, Father Eddie Murphy, was recently killed in a road accident in Ireland.

In Wisbech, as in many towns and villages, we have Churches Together, obviously people who meet regularly from all the local churches.

I was so impressed with how many people from the different churches knew Father Eddie and also the good work he did in only ten months he was here.

Articles were put on the Internet and many people phoned me and my husband to let us know of his sad accident.

As part of Churches Together, I often visit Wisbech St Mary Church and one of the first to call us was Canon Matthew Bradbury from that church to see if we knew about the tragic death.

This, to us, was real churches together. Long may it last and we care for each other.
