Yesterday I heard Mass at St Canice, with about 60 others including choir and servers; Fr Quinn reflected on the wonder that even the tiniest new-baptized child is sharer in the Divine Life of the Trinity: such the goodness and prodigality of God! The choir was boosted by Steven Smyth from Sydney, who also played the organ with aplomb; we sang Missa XI (Orbis factor) and Credo I, while the Proper was well-executed. Mass took a little over an hour, beginning a little after 11.30 am as Father heard confessions beforehand.
Here are some photographs I took before and after Mass (I felt uncomfortable taking pictures during the Dread Sacrifice):
(The original high altar being readied for Mass; note the atypically handsome fixed freestanding altar later installed in front of it.)
(The big six are lit; it's time to Introibo... note the side altars, Our Lady's being used as the credence, and the high ambo with its brass eagle readied for preaching...)
(My view of the priest and his ministers genuflecting upon their arrival at the altar step.)
