On a cold and windy morning in early February Bishop Norman walked to the four corners of the churchyard extension at Wainfleet St Mary, Lincolnshire, to bless, consecrate and pray for the souls of the departed. Bishop Norman was accompanied by Canon Terry Steele, Fr Gary Morgan (the recently Licensed Parish Priest), church wardens and members of the congregation. Shortly after leaving there was a heavy shower of sleet and rain.
