Christmas Night in Clergy House

The Clergy House dining room looks stunning as we prepare for Christmas Dinner; because of the schedule, our Dinner is held in the evening - a wonderful way to finish the great day.

We are able to use some impressive candelabra, and the long table is set. The Cardinal will join the clergy for the meal this evening.

Our dear sisters are preparing in the kitchen: here Sister Angelina is helped by Marinha.

With the lights dimmed, and the candles lighted, it is truly a magical atmosphere.

It is a privilege to be able to celebrate together as chaplains. After the hard work done by all, this will be a time to savour.

In the aftermath of the meal, collapse of stout parties in the Common Room! Mgr Brady (Secretary to the Nuncio) in the middle seems well content ..

Ah, the kitchen that as used by Clarissa and Jennifer!

Thank you, Monsignor, for sharing the link to the BBC broadcast of Midnight Mass. I've listened to it twice.
