Pictures of the Missa Cantata held at St Mary's Church, Cricklade
The Missa Cantata held at the 12th Century Church of St Mary's, Cricklade to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary on 7th October was very spiritually uplifting. It was atmospheric inside the Church with the light shining through the little stain glass windows, the stone pillars and curved archways and the rows of enclosed wooden pews. The Mass was well attended with over thirty people in the congregation. Fr Alex Redman was the Celebrant and he was accompanied by five altar servers. The schola sang magnificently adding to the spirituality of the Mass. Fr Redman in his homily talked about the importance of saying the Rosary and reminded us that in times of special danger ‘Our Lady’ has on many occasions rewarded the faithful who resort to praying the Rosary. He also said that we should pray the Rosary as a family and indeed for our families and friends especially for those who may have lapsed in the faith.
