All Souls Day Mass



This little video is of our last All Souls Day Mass, it was filmed and edited by Clare, who directs our music. The accompanying music is sung by our parish choir, with just a little help from friends. The mezzo-soprano is Sigridur Kristjansdottir a young Icelandic opera singer who practices occassionally in the church.

Father you should be so proud of the parish - a fantastic job!

Absolutely beautiful, and the church looks fantastic too! Well done for all your hard work! Things are going from strength to strength - when I went home for the mid-term break I noticed they have Latin Mass at St Peter and Paul's Church in Cork every Sunday now, whereas only a few months ago it was once a month!

Thank God for you priests who are leading us back to God!

Inspiring, Fr Blake. Thank you.

Fr William Young said...

Superb. An inspiration to all right-minded parish priests. Just think what a right-minded diocesan bishop could achieve in his cathedral.

Clare is one talented lady. You can't go wrong with black-and-white . . . or with Fauré! (I think it was Fauré)

This looks to have been a beautiful Mass, Father.

It was also great to see how well the newly ordered Sanctuary looks in use - it is great to see High Mass with the Celebrant and Ministers all standing on their correct levels.

...and what a luxury to have an opera singer on hand to help out the choir!

Fideliam animae requiscant in pace.

The YouTube video is wonderful, and the soprano especially so. Congratulations, Father
