Festival Sunday

I apologise for the complete lack of postings this week. I had the honour of going to Vienna to witness the ordination of Fr Dimitry Merenich to the Sacred Priesthood and preach at his first Mass. It was a terrific experience. Amongst those supporting Fr Dimitry were people from St John's, from Russia, from Paris and obviously his friends at the Cathedral Church where he works. I will post some photographs of the event and of the Stephansdom (the Cathedral) during the week. Above is the photograph of the six newly ordained together with their ordaining bishop, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn OP. Fr Dimitry is first from left. The photograph was taken in the sacristy immediately after the Ordination Mass.
Today here at St John's is our Festival Sunday. From now on it will be very busy with home communions and getting things ready. This evening at 6pm the choir and orchestra will perform the Mozart Coronation Mass. We look forward to welcome our preacher the Dean of St Paul's. More updates later.
