Mysteries of the Rosary at St Dominic's, Haverstock Hill

The Nativity of Our Lord

On Saturday the annual meeting of the Latin Mass Society's Local Representatives took place. We've taken to having this at the impressive Dominican church, St Dominic's, Haverstock Hill, in North London. This year I took the opportunity of being early to photograph the reredos of the side chapels dedicated to the Mysteries of the Rosary. There are, in fact, 18 side chapels; 15 of them are dedicated to these mysteries.

I've put the Flickr set here. For some reason I've come away without the Annunciation, I will have to get that next time I'm there.

I never cease to be amazed by the acheivments of our predecessors in the Faith, and in particular the reconstruction of the institutional Church in the 19th century. The church dates from 1883.
