What everyone wants to see...

...judging by the comments on Facebook, is more photos of the, er, striking church of Our Lady of Light in Long Crendon, which the Schola Abelis filled with Gregorian Chant last Saturday.

Fr Anthonly Conlon celebrated Mass for the Apostles SS Simon and Jude.

Sadly I didn't have my wide-angle lens, which is ideal to capture the shape of the building.

A good bunch of parishioners came along, and I judge the whole thing to have been a success.

Fr Conlon travelled 20 miles from his parish in Goring. Nine singers and four servers converged on the place for the occasion. We did it at the request of a regular worshipper with the agreement of the Parish Priest. It is all part of preserving the Traditional Mass and confirming it as part of the life of the Church: not just in a little ghetto for confirmed eccentrics, but everywhere, for everyone.

  1. Our Lady of Light in Long Crendon is remarkable example of a building erected at low cost and largely by the energy and initiative of the parish priest and volunteers. The building has a 12-sided design and is built from the recycled moulds of a reinforced concrete portal frame. The most dramatic feature of the interior is the 'dalle de verre' stained glass scheme by Goddard and Gibbs. There is a striking analogy with the way the Traditional rite is being revived by committed parish priests and volunteers.
