For some reason the power suddenly went of at the Hospital Chapel today and despite various efforts we couldn’t get it to come back on; we know it was a localised fault in the Chapel. It meant that we had no heat or light on what must have been one of the coldest days so far this year. We called the electricians who recently undertook some rewiring and they were going to be at the Chapel later today. I hope it will be resolved as next week, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, is held for the Ilford area at the Chapel every day at 12 noon.
Despite the adverse conditions Mass continued as normal but there were no refreshments afterwards..As we couldn’t use the organ our two hymns were accompanied on the grand piano.
