The last of our 2017 Lenten talks was given by the incredibly talented friend of the parish, Mr Henry Creechan who has made a life size replica of the Shroud of Turin. After the 6pm Low Mass the Replica and another smaller image were blessed while the schola sang Pergolesi’s ‘Stabat Mater’ and Palestrina’s ‘Adoramus Te Christe’. Afterwards we enjoyed supper together in a packed hall before Henry’s fascinating presentation on the topic of the Shroud. The whole evening ended in the most perfect way- Solemn Latin Compline (Traditional Night Prayer) by candlelight before the illuminated shroud image. Thanks to Mr Creechan for bringing so much blessing by his talents and to Fr Morris for facilitating the event and for conducting the liturgies so beautifully. The Shroud will remain at IHOM for the next two weeks.
