Yesterday evening...

...was wonderful, a Solemn Mass for the Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham and of Ransom and Fr Sean Finnegan's 20th anniversary of ordination. There are some lovely photos of the Mass on Valle Adurni you really must see!

Fr Sean was the celebrant, the Deacon was Revd Alcuin Reid, and Subdeacon Revd Richard Edwards. Dominic Scarborough was MC. Fr Ray Blake preached the homily. The music was superb, Byrd four part Mass, and the propers were Missa Sancta Parens (Hail Holy Parent). The church was full, the atmosphere was great and it was a real joy to be present at such a special Mass.

Naturally, afterwards there was an equally traditional celebration in the hall:

Congratulations Fr Sean!
