14 December 2009


For Gaudete Sunday, a missa cantata was celebrated at Our Lady of Consolation by Fr Hurley. Fr Hurley's sermon focused on St John the Baptist, and the importance of not forgetting to keep Christ in Christmas. The Seaford Schola, though down in numbers (everyone I know seems to have one type of lurgy or other at the moment), sang out loud and clear, and there was plenty of lovely incense to make it a real celebration. And of course there were some lovely rose vestments, not entirely unlike those in the photo below pinched from the NLM site.
