"gaudia Paschalia" winging it way!

For Rev. Fr John and Mrs. Hunwicke.
Photos of our Christchurch chapel.

Oratory of Our Mother of Perpetual Succour,
141 Rutland Street,
St Alban's, Christchurch,
as it had been.

Brother Nicodemus Mary,F.SS.R.
moved into action last week.
Brother enjoys decorating the sanctuary.
The chapel had been a hall belonging to the Closed Brethren.
Over the years many generous friends
have worked to make it suitable for the Holy Sacrifice.

Soon after we arrived, friends made this opening in the hall's ceiling
and found a suitable window to give added emphasis and light
to the altar which is directly below.

The image of Our Mother of Perpetual Succour
was carefully protected during operations.

 The work is not finished.
 But last Saturday night the altar was replaced for the
Mass of Low Sunday.
 More coats of paint are needed and
further developments will be reported.

Our tabernacle was brought to Christchurch
as part of our luggage last month.
It is French and quite old.

 Its doors are beautifully carved.

 This is how things stood for Low Sunday.
May God bless the devoted monk and his holy work.

Beautifully done! I firmly believe that Br. Nicodemus can rebuild the Ark with just a Swiss Army Knife.

I love the tabernacle doors showing the Divine Pelican feeding Its young with Its own Lifeblood to counter the poison of the Ancient Serpent. And the triumphant Lamb of God still pouring out His Lifeblood for His own.
