From the Archive - 8

This photo was taken in May 2003 when Fr Dwayne Bednar from Westminster Cathedral came to celebrate an Eastertide Mass in the Chapel.

The thurifer was Alex Henley (the younger brother of Edward Henley - a former pupil of Latymer who is just starting his third year of formation for the priesthood at the English College at Rome). Alex was a server at Westminster Cathedral and he and Fr Dwayne clearly forgot that they were not in the Cathedral, as they managed to fill the small Chapel with dense clouds of incense smoke. I am amazed that no one passed out!

In his first year of formation, Edward purchased a couple of pairs of red socks in the sale at Gamarelli's. When I questioned the wisdom of this purchase he said that they would probably come in useful one day. I wouldn't be surprised if they did!

It is a pity that my lovely vestments do not show up very well in all the haze. You will have to take it from me that the Paschal Candle was lit!
