Low Mass in Bexhill

A Low Mass at St Mary Magdalene's Bexhill had been long awaited by parishioners there, and they weren't disappointed! There was a tremendously good turn out for a mid afternoon Mass on a sunny Bank Holiday, and it was really great to see. Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith was the celebrant and preached a thought-provoking sermon on how charity and law are complimentary, not an either/or choice.

It was only the second time I'd been in St Mary Magdalene's, and took a few pictures.

Here's a photo of the impressive Pieta.

And one of the Lady Chapel.

Very many thanks to Fr Spain the parish priest, and to Fr Lucie-Smith.

Now I'm very much looking forward to the next one, next Sunday, 3.00pm at Our Lady of Ransom, Eastbourne!
