Day with Mary - Easter Saturday

Yesterday the Day with Mary was held at our parish church. Many visitors from London and elsewhere came, and I was pleased that a number of our parishioners attended too. It was a wonderful day of prayer and devotion in honour of the Virgin Mary.

Father Selvam Sahaya, a Salesian priest from Madras, was present for the day and gave a sermon in the afternoon, helped with confessions, and led the Blessed Sacrament Procession.

At the request of the organisers, Mass was celebrated in the Extaordinary Form of the Roman Rite with the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate performing the chant. Two Friars of the Immaculate, Brothers Leonard and Peter Damian (Eymard), were also present and helped in the liturgies. I was very pleased that a number of our young servers volunteered to serve at the Mass.

Many visitors commented on the beauty of our church and the celebration of the liturgy.

Here's a slide show of the some of the day.
