Patronal Pageantry 2

A second page of images from Saint Faith's Night at Saint Faith's, picturing the service from the receiving of Communion,
the final procession, the scene at the back of church, and over refreshments in the Parish Hall.
It was a marvellous ninety minutes of worship, made memorable by superbly-ord
ered and colourful liturgy, marvellous music and happy fellowship afterwards.
Fr High Allen's fine sermon was enlivened by a hilarious true story, which brought the house down.
It is reproduced on a separate page, together with an archive of over 150 religious jokes, some funnier than others.
To read it, go to Funny You Should Say That,
where it features as item no. 175

                                                       The choir kneel at the Nave Altar for Holy Communion                                                                                                                                                 Lay people come forward in their turn

                                                                     Clergy and lay administrators at the Distribution                                                                                                                                       After Communion... and the choir are still in full voice

                                                                                                                      The Crucifer leads out the retiring procession                     Caught in flight: the self-styled Baked Alaska gives a rare glimpse of a white biretta!

                                                          Fr Neil and Fr Hugh Allen after the service                                                                                                                                     The Vicar with two of the attendant clergy

During refreshments in the Parish Hall, Fr Neil is seen with a visiting nun, a visiting priest... and a visiting Church Warden
