Yesterday evening the Hospital Chapel played host to the Guild of the Servants of the Sanctuary in their annual visit. They celebrated their Office, I preached, and this was followed by Benediction.Father Hingley, the Chapter Chaplain, officiated at Benediction. I was very grateful to Doreen, Dave and Richard who opened the Chapel at 6.00 p.m.(2 hours before the service) and put the heating on – it can be like a fridge in there – then proceeded to prepare for refreshments after the service. Many thanks to you for doing this. I am grateful to Father Martin for loaning the Chapel a monstrance and humeral veil which we don’t possess – perhaps when funds allow we might get one or the other – or even both.


  1. Why not ask the CBS for a grant? I thought that its principal reason for existing was to foster devotion to the Blessed Sacrament in the Church of England, so this would seem like an ideal use of their funds.
