More pictures will follow soon, but for now, a great big thank you to all who have been so kind and generous in their support!
The weather was fantastic, the views were stunning, hanging out of a plane puts your heart in your mouth, and flying through the sky for the Jubilee Appeal is worth it! A short film has been made of the occasion and will be sent to Fr Liam in the next 8 days. Once it’s arrived in the parish there will be a showing after the Sunday Masses!
The height was 12,000ft.
The top speed was about 130mph.
The free-fall time was about a minute.
The controlled parachute descent was for about five minutes, from 7000ft!
Sponsor forms have now been sent out across the diocese – that’s about 51 separate churches. Keep watching this space as electronic sponsorship will soon be going live too! Fr Mansel and Fr Liam will jump from 12,000 feet – about 2.3miles – and will fall back to the earth at speeds approaching 120mph; The free-fall will take almost a minute….aghhhhh Scary stuff!
Fr Liam and Fr Mansel (of Mumbles Parish) will be doing a sponsored Skydive for the Menevia Jubilee Appeal! Please support them, and the whole diocese, by encouraging them in their daredevil endeavours. Sponsor forms are in the porch to the church. The jump is on September 13th at Swansea Airport from 8:30am.
