This year we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the opening of the nave of the Church. There is a great High Mass of the Holy Spirit on the 27th of this month, with Fr Tim Finigan preaching, you know the normal type of thing Schubert's 2nd Mass in G with tympani and that sort of thing, along with a new Tu Es Petrus by a promising young composer Tom Bennett - good reviews in the musical press - and some brilliant young soloists.
Yes of course you can come.
The celebrations continue until the Feast of St Mary Magdaen in July, including, we hope a street party for the Queen's Jubilee and, if my prayers work, 40 Hours during the Dublin Eucharist Congress. I need young men to pray through the night - how do I get them?
The answer is obvious: ask Our Lady to find them.
What I'm most pleased with, however, is getting the following to agree to come and speak, it is so kind of them:
Mgr Andrew Wadsworth the Secretary of ICEL
James MacMillan one of the world leading contemporary composers
Mgr Keith Newton of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham
Fr Aidan Nichols: the Balthazarian and Ratzingerian scholar and prolific author and thinker
Fr Alexander Sherbrooke the Parish Priest of St Patrick's Soho and founder of the School of Evangelisation
Here is the Facebook page, though I hate Facebook,
and there should be a blog too soon.
We want to get as many people here as possible, so yes, do come and bring friends.
