Re: Mill Hill Chapel

It seems to be a lively Unitarian chapel.

Alas, they do not believe in the Trinity, nor that Jesus Christ was God, merely that he was divinely inspired.

Difficult, therefore, to know how they can sing Christmas carols as meaning what we believe them to mean.

Re: The post-Christmas period

Similar potential chaos with options will also occur on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (January 10, 2022).

She died peacefully at 2:30pm on Thursday 11 November in the Whittington Hospital, Archway, North London, where she had bee...

The post-Christmas period

When the celebration of the Epiphany was transferred to the nearest Sunday, some 40 years ago, one the casualties was the 2nd Sunday after Christmas . Already it had only occurred in four years out of seven; now it vanished from the calendar altogether. When the celebration of the Epiphany was retur...

Re: Mission Opportunity

But the number who are not yet willing to be vaccinated, due to the lack of evidence of the long term effects of the vaccines, is larger than some would think. Scientists can say all they want about the volume of trials done. But we all know that they have not yet mastered time travel. I realise th...

Re: Mission Opportunity

Dear oops , The number of people who cannot be vaccinated is quite small, compared to the entire population. The normal reason is a medical one relating to their immune-compromised state, in which case they should be steering well clear of events with numbers of people where they would be incredibly...

Re: Vacancy for a new Papal MC

Would I be right in thinking that a Papal MC carries a lot of clout beyond controlling errant altar servers? Yes. You have a great deal of personal access to the pope. You have a team of 7 or 8 assistant MCs. You run the office for celebrations at which the pope presides, which means liaising with ...

Re: Vacancy for a new Papal MC

A bit like chess. Viola moves from Tortona to be no. 2 at CDW in Rome — Marini moves from Rome to Tortona. To mix metaphors, one can't help feeling one is watching a piece of the jigsaw dropping into place.

Re: "Responsorial" Gloria

I'm a little late to this discussion but we are reintroducing a sung Gloria for the first time this Sunday and I've picked the Glory to God from Paul Inwood's 'A Plymouth Mass' which is responsorial. It was introduced to the congregation in the early days of the new translation, we used to alternat...

Re: New 'Phase 4' Guidelines
