Ritual Note.

Another heads-up note.
I just got back from practice for Maundy Thursday. It will be a full solemn mass with a torchbearers at the elevation, other servers 'in choro', the music previously indicated, etc.
This is the Big point: Like at the patronal festival, it will be celebrated Ad Orientem
( AKA versus Deum AKA with the back to the people. )
Good development. I hope someone will be there to take photos, as I'll be second thurifer (There are three thurifers in the procession to the Altar of Repose) If you want to take photos, just go up to the choir loft before mass and Mr. Bradford ( our choir-master) will be glad to accomodate you. Just know that you'll be receiving communion with the choir.
