Advent, Christmas and Epiphany with the Ordinariate
Tuesday 27th November 2012

Groups from the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham are preparing to celebrate the season of Advent with a traditional service - the Advent Procession - now available for use in the Catholic Church through the publication of the Customary of Our Lady of Walsingham.

Immediately before Christmas - and during the Octave - groups will make use of the famous Nine Lessons and Carols, which is heard across the world, broadcast by the BBC from King's College, Cambridge, on Christmas Eve. The service was constructed by the once Dean of King's, the Reverend Eric Milner-White, and is instantly recognisable as one of the most beautiful parts of the Anglican tradition - making use of choral music, hymnody, and readings, which trace the prophecies and events of the Nativity of the Lord.

To coincide with the second anniversary of the erection of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, a festive service of carols and readings for the Epiphany, will be held on Thursday 10 January 2013 in St Mary's, Cadogan Street, London. This will be a candlelit service, led by the Ordinary and in the presence of a large number of clergy of the Personal Ordinariate. The music will be provided by the well-known Schola Cantorum of the Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, and readings from scripture and the Anglican tradition (now published in the Customary of Our Lady of Walsingham) will feature. Amongst those reading at the service will be the Duke of Norfolk and Catholic authors Piers Paul Read and Peter Stanford. The service will conclude with Pontifical Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
