The Church of Our Lady Star of the Sea, Burry Port was packed out for the Mayoral Mass to celebrate Stephen James becoming Mayor of Burry Port and Pembrey.
With the Mass officiated by Bishop Mullins and Father Kochalumchuvattil, with four altar servers, and a good representation from the Kidwelly and Burry Port churches, and many local dignitaries and members of the local community, the Eucharistic service went very well.
With the Burry Port Male Voice Choir singing traditional hymns, and local singer Elizabeth Bowen giving a stirring rendition of Ave Maria especially, it was a very moving experience.
After the Mass the celebrants, servers and dignitaries joined our new Mayor for a photo in front of the altar.
Afterwards everyone was invited to an afternoon tea and light buffet at Burry Port Memorial Hall, and a thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all.
So congratulations, from everyone in our parish, to Stephen James on becoming Mayor and the hard working Mary James on becoming the Lady Mayoress.
