This Time of Year:

The       services       in       November       are somewhat unusual. Our     first     Sunday     is     our     PATRONAL FESTIVAL,      our      Patron      Saint      being Leonard. Leonard   of   Noblac   (or   Limoges)   was   a cavalry    officer    in    the    Frankish    Army      around   the   year   500AD   (that’s   what   the French   were   called   then)   of   King   Clovis, who    was    the    first    ruler    to    unite    the tribes    of    what    are    now    France    and Belgium (d. 27th November 511, Paris). Leonard    (Saint    Leonard    of    Noblac)    is often    depicted    as    an    abbot    holding chains,    fetters    or    locks,    or    manacles since    the    story    is    that    he    released prisoners    of    war    rather    than    execute them. Patronage: political prisoners,   imprisoned    people,    prisoners    of    war, and captives. On      Sunday      11th      November      we commemorate   100   years   (to   the   day) of   the   cessation   of   the   First   World   War, at 11:00am. _________________________ Oh, and on 1st November, there will be .. 55     on-line     SHOPPING     DAYS     left     to Christmas !
