Over 70 priests from the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham gathered with the Ordinary, Mgr Keith Newton, at the annual Chrism Mass today. The Mass, celebrated by the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Antonio Mennini, was the first to be held in the new central London church in the care of the Ordinariate, Our Lady of the Assumption, Warwick Street.
Just under 300 faithful attended the ceremony with their priests, a ceremony which was enriched by the beauty of fine music drawn from the Catholic and Anglican traditions.
Here are a few photos.
