The Feast of St Michael and All Angels (transferred)

Those of you in the ecclesiastical know will realise that it is currently Michaelmas.

As such, at Coventry Cathedral being offically The Cathedral and Parish Church of Saint Michael, Coventry we celebrated the patronal festival. and I were serving. Canon Adrian Daffern celebrated the Mass and not only did it in his normal excellent style, but also sung the the Eucharistic prayer. Wonderful. The Cathedral should do this more. Fr Adrian even agreed with me that we should have had some smoke.

After High Mass (or the Cathedral Eucharist as it is officially called) we went to Whitefriars for lunch and a few beers.

Following this we moved on to Mary Mags where and I were Acolytes for the joint Churches Together in Earlsdon and Chapelfields joint service. It was excellently done (which is something that can not be said normally for ecumenical endeavours.) I think out new Parish Priest, Canon David Robinson is beginning to sort things out. Hooray. We even had asperging after the renewall of Baptismal Vows.

So we may have had a unsuitable appointment as Archdeacon, but at least even in this Diocese some things are done well.
