Some Photos from Portsmouth’s OLW Festival

WAT_1011 003On Saturday 26th September 2015, two days after the UK Ordinariate’s Titular Solemnity of Our Lady of Walsingham, there was a Festival of Our Lady of Walsingham at St. Agatha’s Church, Portsmouth. The celebrant was Monsignor Keith Newton. the Ordinary. An address was given after Mass by CofE Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, formerly of Rochester. A further Anglican bishop was in attendance (as at the Ordinariate Festival in Westminster a week earlier), namely Bishop John Hind, formerly of Chichester.

Here are some photos with comments taken from the Portsmouth Mission blog:

The Ordinary prayed in front of the Blessed Sacrament on the St. George Altar before the beginning of the Mass. Notice the beautiful banners.
