Patronal Festival

Our Patronal festival - that is, St Gabriel's Day - is 29 September, and we tend to celebrate it on the nearest Sunday. It is an important celebration. In the Church of England's caendar, a patronal festival is the highest "grade" of celebration, ranking along with Christmas and Easter in importance.
