Pictures of the High Mass of Saturday in Whitsun Week at Downside Abbey

Including the Choir, servers and congregation there were about seventy people participating in the High Mass at Downside Abbey. 

The Officiating Clergy were: Dom Boniface Hill (celebrant), Fr Philip Thomas (deacon) and Rev Michael Belt (sub deacon).  The music was provided by the St John’s Festival Choir directed by Elizabeth Bates.  The choir were in magnificent voice and filled the Abbey with their singing.

The Epistle was taken from Romans Chapter 5 and the Gospel reading Luke Chapter 4.  Dom Boniface gave the homily and spoke about the Christian martyrs.
