125 years...

...of St John's seminary Wonersh.

I  was at the seminary for some other work and was invited  to join in the celebrations for the 125th anniversary - a most glorious Vespers in the College chapel, packed and with an overflow of people in the entrance area.  It was moving to hear the young men's strong voices singing the psalms. The new Rector made the Oath of office, saying the Creed  and the solemn declaration of obedience to the Church with great conviction. There was a sense of hope and of faith in the future.  A golden summer evening - and afterwards wine and  much talk and the seminarians serving us delcious canapes...a happy, happy time.
