A Day With Mary begins
Just a quick post before we go into action. The Day With Mary team arrived just after eight this morning. They have now unloaded the van, set up the glorious bookstall (quite a lot of TAN books there) while the sisters have prepared the statue and its plinth, ready for the procession that will start soon. We have several priests ready to hear confessions, there will be Missa Cantata for the Ember Day, adoration and a Blessed Sacrament procession in the afternoon, Benediction and various other devotions through the day.
When I went to greet the team at half past eight and they were unloading the van, I sang the chorus of "My old man said 'follow the van'" and they told me of the above video which was taken at Fr Schofield's Church in Uxbridge.
Two sermons ready, cassock on, prepared to consecrate the parish once more to Our Lady Immaculate... Ave Maria!
