Mass yesterday evening

At last night's Mass of the Annunciation, we welcomed the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate who sang the chants from the Gradual, the Missa cum Iubilo, and motets at the Offertory and Communion.

Mulier Fortis has posted some photos at her post Feast of the Annunciation. In this one, she has switched on the "starburst" option or something but the effect is quite good:

Then she has a photo of some of the "cold-hearted, spirit-quenching agents of global horror" gathered in the Hall afterwards. It is such a joy to have the sisters here to visit. Young people in England today rarely see religious women in habits, and the sisters are always delighted to talk to them about the faith.

Hilda and Mary had suggested putting on tea after the Mass and I readily agreed. As ever, the "tea" included various cakes, home made scones, and sweets for the children who came out late for a long Mass.
