Solemn Evensong and Benediction at the Ordinariate Church in London

Solemn Evensong was sung and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament was given yesterday at Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory's Church, Warwick Street (London). It was the first time the Feast of the Assumption had been celebrated at Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory’s since the church was dedicated to the life of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham earlier this year.

Evensong was led by Fr Mark Elliott Smith, Parish Priest at Warwick Street. Benediction was given by Mgr Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Ordinariate. The guest preacher was Fr Allen Brent, a priest of the Ordinariate and Professor of Early Church History and Iconography at King's College, London. More photographs here.
