ROYOLTY joined the congregation at Sacred Heart Church, Penicuik, for Sunday Mass recently.

Members of the parish were delighted when the Earl and Countess of Wessex joined them for the morning service conducted by Fr John McInnes.

 

"It was great fun" said Fr McInnes who added that Prince Edward and his wife Sophie were present for the children's liturgy.

 

The couple were in Scotland for the christening, performed the day before by Fr McInnes, of Lord and Lady Dalmeny's  youngest child, Caspian Albert Harry Primrose, at Rosebery Chaepl. Sophie Wessex is the child's godmother.

 

Meanwhile, Cardinal Keith O'Brien was at Sacred Heart Church last night (Wednesday) to conduct the confirmation service for P4 pupils from Sacred Heart.
