after Sunday Mass at Precious Blood Church, London Bridge, saw us busy discussing various arrangements for the Ordinariate Festival (see links below). One of the (many) things that I enjoy about the Ordinariate is that the refreshments include real coffee...and before you sneer, just think about it: why have so many Catholic parishes, groups, associations, and schools, come to assume that it should be standard to offer orange/brown powder topped up with hot water to form a nasty brown liquid? Why not big pots of tea and coffee, jugs of milk, and volunteers serving and pouring and handing-round and washing-up? An informal working group tackling refreshments for this year's Ordinariate Festival has organised the transfer across London of the neccessary jugs and equipment to serve decent coffee to 200-300 people at Westminster Cathedral Hall. It can be done. We did it last year and people arrived from across Britain to be greeted by fresh coffee and tea and doughnuts..
