Brick by Brick in London’s Corpus Christi in Maiden Lane

I have posted updates from time to time about the wonderful restoration work being done at Corpus Christi Church in Maiden Lane, London, near Covent Garden.  Fr. Alan Robinson has the task in hand and is making great progress.  I’ve always enjoyed my visits to the church and look forward to seeing the newly restored Lady Chapel.

I receive an email from Fr. Robinson saying:

Last Thursday evening the new statue of Our Lady of Walsingham was blessed.  What an incredible evening.  Three bishops were on the sanctuary – lots of clergy in choir – the church was packed to the doors –  and a great party afterwards.  Thank you to all of you for making it possible – by the money you have contributed and by your encouragement.  If you follow the link below you can see some photographs pf the evening, taken by the Diocesan Communications Office.  HERE

SO – next is the SANCTUARY.  I really would like to begin this asap – let’s not lose the momentum.  Please keep the payers going for the funding of this part of the church.

Fr. Z kudos to the parish and to Fr. Robinson.


I like this blurb in the parish bulletin:
