Our Lady welcomes the children


After Mass for the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows today these children went to say a prayer at the Lady Altar. Rather like a mini Fatima in the parish Church!

Our sacristy team decorate the statue for feast of Our Lady. They did this for Our Lady's birthday but asked to keep it like that for the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. It's after all quite natural for people to want to observe octaves.

We were also blessed today with the presence of Brother Anselm OSB who has come to visit the parish during a few days holiday. That meant that we could sing the sequence with organ accompaniment and we will have the organ for Benediction this evening.
