Though the Streets of Heaven: The May Devotion
The May Devotion from St Mary's, Bourne Street. Normally this weekend would see us processing through the streets of our parish in celebration of Our Lady. This year we cannot, but we celebrate the Mother of God with this devotion, in which we move from the temporary chapel in the Presbytery, through a series of stations, to the shrine of Our Lady of Peace in the church. The music is sung by the choir of St Mary's, Bourne Street; the organ is played by Richard Hills. The preacher is Fr William Davage; the reader is Lowdy Brabyn; the prayers are read by Fr Andrew Walker, Vicar, and Fr Sam Korn, assistant priest.Posted by St Mary's, Bourne Street on Saturday, 2 May 2020
