On Monday 8 April at Saint Ambrose's, Kidderminster, two of our parishioners were awarded with Ubi Caritas medals for their dedication and service to the church.

The presentation took place during the Mass of the Solemnity.

Two parishioners, Christina Geraghty and Lyndon Whatley, were presented with their Ubi Caritas awards by Bishop David Evans. They are worthy recipients and do a lot for the church and the parish community.

The awards were granted by the Archbishop of Birmingham Bernard Longley, as a symbol of the gratitude of the clergy and people of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. 

“Ubi caritas et amor Deus ibi est” means where there is love and kindness, God is there. 

After the Mass parishioners, family and friends were invited into the Adams Lounge for a buffet, provided by Mick and Mary Preston, with cakes by the wonderful ladies of the UCM. 

A lovely evening was enjoyed by all.
