The Friends of the Ordinariate remind us that the annual FOTO Epiphany Service of Lessons and Carols by Candlelight followed by Benediction will take place on Thursday 8 January 2015 (6.30pm) at the church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory (Warwick Street, London, W1).
The service will be led by Mgr Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and President of the Friends. The Lessons, which include post-biblical readings drawn from the riches of the British spiritual tradition, alongside lessons from the scriptures, will be read by guest readers, including the Conservative peer, Lord Deben, the newly appointed Rector of the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, Mgr John Armitage, the Catholic writer and broadcaster, Mary O’Regan, and the Superior of the Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother Winsome.
Music, provided by the acclaimed Schola Cantorum of the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, will include The Lamb by John Tavener, The Three Kings by Peter Cornelius and Morten Lauridsen’s setting of O Magnum Mysterium.
Refreshments for Epiphanytide will be served after the Service and a collection will also be taken for the work of the Friends of the Ordinariate.
The annual Epiphany Service is always a very popular event, to which all are most welcome!
The Friends of the Ordinariate would also like to take this opportunity to wish us all a very
happy and blessed New Year!
