Farewell to Alleluia!

This lovely ceramic sits on the wall outside the entrance to the Chapel - but it wont do for much longer! Alleluia is the song of joy which resounds through our servies in the Chapel - but it is forbidden to use the word at liturgical services during the season of Lent. So we shall shortly be bidding farewell to this song of joy, and the ceramic will have to be removed.

Fear not - it will return on Easter Sunday, and the abundance of alleluias during the fifty days of Easter feasting will more than make up for its absence during the forty days of Lenten fasting!
