Compline & Benediction

It being the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, we had a larger turn-out than usual for our fortnightly chant practice and devotions at St Francis, Riverside. Compline and then Benediction were sung as usual, but in honour of the feast we added two Marian chants at the end: the Ave Maria and the Ave Regina cælorum.

After church, supper: Fr Allan very kindly put on a get-together at the friary for us all, to farewell us for the time being - the schola goes into recess over the Christmas break, from now until February. Many thanks are due him for all his patience, skill and kindness.
