On the first Sunday of October a number of parishioners gathered in the church together with Fr Loughran to pray for priests. Pope Benedict has declared this year (July 09 to July 10) a Year for Priests; he is asking the faithful all over the world to especially pray for their priests.
So, in addition to our Saturday morning Expostion for this intention, the October Service was devoted to it also. Various mysteries of the Rosary were prayed interspersed with hymns, scripture readings and a number of other liturgical actions.
The pictures show Rev Fred Sanderson reading at the lectern and the statue of our Lady in front of which the congregation left prayer candles.
