Sunday Mass...

...at the Church of the Most Precious Blood at the Borough, London Bridge. There is a children's choir which is now singing beautifully. Before every choir practice, they line up in front of the sanctuary and genuflect together, before making their way to the choir loft, where they say the Prayer of the choristers of the Royal School of Church Music "Bless O Lord, us Thy servants..."

Today  at Mass we gave thanks for the harvest, and gifts of food and other necessities, collected for the Manna Centre, were stacked on a table.I made a  modest Harvest contribution selling home-made jam, rose-hip syrup, and other goodies. It was also the feast of Our Lady of Walsingham, so we sang a hymn in her honour, which I had never heard before joining the Ordinariate, and is rather lovely. I cannot find it anywhere on the internet so cannot provide a link - can anyone help?

Hi Joanna, is this the hymn - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kO0_QHFtTgA Maybe it is the one, I found it in YouTube. Best wishes - Mr John King from Northern Ireland.

the tune is the one we sang...but the words were different. The words in this link are lovely, but so were the ones we sang! So evidently there are various versions...

Thank you for sending this link
