The suburbs... bright sunshine,and a morning Mass at Holy Ghost Church, Balham.A class of children from the parish primary school were there,filling the rows of pews at the front, beautifully attentive, looking smart in their school uniforms, reverent, delightful. This wasn't a special occasion - weekday Masses are evidently a fairly regular part of school life. Good numbers of people in the rest of the congregation too - it all made a very cheering start to the day. Feast of the English Martyrs and the priest spoke beautifully to the children, explaining about the importance of learning about the Faith and being able to talk about it with confidence and be a witness...

A cheering chat w. the parish priest, who is also diocesan Vocations Director. Check out this event which will bring together young people this summer.
