A Glimpse of Heaven... the name of a beautiful new DVD, launched last night with a party at Farm Street (Jesuit church).

This is the beautifully-narrated, magnificently filmed story of some of England's churches. These are churches that are frequently ignored because they are Catholic. From the late 18th century onwards, Catholics were building churches and chapels - sometimes in fairly hidden places at first, but then gradually, as the law and public opinion allowed, more visibly in the streets of towns and cities. This new DVD tells about them - glorious ceilings and wonderful gothic arches, for schools and convents and parishes, Pugin and Bentley and would make a wonderful Christmas present, and would also be useful for a parish to own, for showing to parish groups - old people's lunchtime gathering, Confirmation class, get good value for money as the DVD is in two halves, 120 minutes in all.

Find out more here, and here, where you can order a copy..
