Today, the Feast of the Transfiguration at St Pancras, Lewes

Well. Wow. Sung Mass. Incense. Latin. Fr Andrew Southwell. And a huge number of servers.
Yes, it was the St Catherine's Trust Summer School. A church -and sanctuary- full of kids. If anyone ever tells me again that young people can't 'do' long masses, or that they get nothing out of them (admittedly that's harder to gauge, but as none of them were fidgeting particularly and it was so hot in church, I think that's saying something), I shall tell them not to be so patronising.
