To Brighton... St Mary Magdalene Church, to speak about Mother Riccarda Hambrough,  a nun with a remarkable story, and a special link to Brighton. A local bus now carries her name!  (To find out more, read this book). A beautiful Mass and a warm welcome from the splendid parish priest Father Ray Blake. A packed hall, despite a rainy night. Delicious sandwiches and cakes, and freshly-brewed tea. A friendly  atmosphere with a sense of great good cheer - what a wonderful parish! Members of the Hambrough family had come along - it was wonderful to chat, and they are arranging for me to talk to a family gathering as they are all keen to learn more about their remarkable great-aunt!
