Studio seen from outside
ON Sunday 18th November we had the official opening of Sr Marie's new studio, with a blessing by Fr Dominic White o.p. Fr. Dominic preached on the imprtance of art in preaching, as a medium that will touch hearts when words no longer function. He then blessed the studio, concluding with a prayer adaptedd from a section of John Paul II's Letter to artists We all enjoyed the beautiful exhibition of Sr Marie's photographic art.
The studio will be one of those taking part in the 'open studios' event in Cambridge on November 25th and December 2nd between 2,00-7.00 pm. at 153 Huntingdon Rd Cambridge. All welcome!

Every year in Oxford, on 1st May, crowds gather in the early morning outside Magdalen College. At precisely 6am, the chapel choir appears at the top of the tower, singing hymns and madrigals to welcome the coming summer.

All Souls, Blessing the graves
Today we saw the laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph. For the soldiers who marched it was a remembrance of lost companions, and for most who watched, either at home or in London, or who attended similar events in their home towns, a reminder of the uncle, the grandfather, the brother or the sister, mother, aunt who did not come home, or who was lost in the bombing raids. No family in these islands went untouched, though some were luckier.
