Midnight Mass


This is the way the chapel looked at Holy Peace following this year’s midnight mass. We began the experience in darkness and were escorted from our car by Brother Kevin. A local power failure had blanketed the area in darkness and just like the shepherds 2000 years ago we were greeted by an angel with a torch as the Brits call them. Our escort guided us to the chapel where we joined dozens of others in a candlelight vigil. A few minutes prior to the start of Mass the power was restored and we celebrated the Nativity of Our Lord. It was very Franciscan, lovely and mystical too.
