Launch of the East Kent Chapter

Lucy writes: I'm delighted to announce the start of a new Guild of St Clare Chapter in East Kent. The inaugural vestment mending session, which I will be attending myself, is on Saturday, 9th March at the Shrine of St Augustine's, Ramsgate, 10.30am-3.30pm.

The East Kent Chapter will, initially, be assisting mainly with the vestments kept at the Shrine, where the Traditional Mass is frequently celebrated. At a historic church such as this one, the work is of particular importance, and the Guild of St Clare is honoured to have been entrusted with it.

This banner at St Augustine's will be one of the first jobs that the new East Kent Chapter will be tackling.

Leading the Chapter is Gerrie Serpell, an experienced stitcher and vestment maker. If you would like more information, or to join the East Kent Chapter, please email her on siew.gerrie@gmail.com .
