Bishop Rifan in Holywell

Yesterday was the annual LMS pilgrimage to Holywell, the ancient shrine to St Winifride - dating back to the 7th Century, and never destroyed. Bishop Rifan celebrated Pontifical Mass at the throne, a very splendid ceremony, to a packed church - standing room only at the back.

I was part of a liturgical schola behind the altar. As with most churches the free-standing altar cuts the available space in the sanctuary; with a polyphonic choir in the choir loft, there was nowhere else for us to go. It worked pretty well.

It was a great occasion. I'll have some better photos soon I hope!
