From digging to Mass, at Blackfen. The Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate (lots of them,)were in fine voice and the army of altar servers were out in force again.
Then to the Hall for a cup of tea and a table of goodies where Fr Tim's 'fellow cold-hearted, spirit-quenching agents of global horror,' were seen to be chatting to each other, playing pool and generally enjoy each other's company. They come in all sizes from very young to very old.
I like the way the Feast of the Annunciation is exacly 9 months before Christmas Day. It makes me smile.
