I was celebrant at Mass for the annual LMS Pilgrimage to York and St Margaret Clitheroe on Saturday, hosted by the Oratorian Fathers at St Wilfrid's church in the heart of the city,
A splendid setting.
The Fathers and Brothers of the growing community seem to be flourishing there
- they certainly work hard!
Some splendid music, including Schubert's Mass in G, some Palestrina and Gounod.
Fr Stephen Brown of the Oratorian Community
and Fr William Charlton of Middlesbrough Diocese
acted as Deacon and Subdeacon.
The atmospheric photos were taken by John Aron
for the LMS Facebook page,
where you can see plenty more of them.
