Pictures of Br Henry's Acolytate Mass

It was good to have such a crowd of parishioners from St Wilfrid's and St Joseph's to support Br Henry at this important stage of his progress to priesthood. Thank you to all who came. Candidates for Holy Orders are usually made acolytes (one of the ancient ministries of the Church) in seminaries. Oratory candidates do much of their formation in the parish so we do it at a Parish Mass. Here are some pictures:011A9144 - Version 2011A9230 - Version 3011A9276 - Version 2011A9278 - Version 2
