Mass for the Nativity of Our Blessed Lady at Glastonbury – report.

Fr Philip Thomas celebrated Mass for the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the crypt chapel at Glastonbury Abbey on Saturday 8th September.

We were blessed with beautiful sunshine, and the largest congregation we have yet seen at this Mass.

Fr Philip preached on Our Lady as Stella Maris – the Morning Star, who precedes and lights the way to Our Lord.

Afterwards, many stayed to enjoy a picnic in the grounds of the ruined Abbey. This is now an annual LMS event - Glastonbury Abbey, with its strong Marian associations, is a wonderful place to celebrate Our Lady's birthday.
