150th Solemn High Mass – in pictures

I am so thrilled with the photos of the 150th Celebration Mass taken by our photographer Amelia Shepherd.

Meli captures perfectly that sense of drama and greatness, of awe and majesty  that should unfold as you witness the extraordinary events of the celebration of the Mass.

The expectation …

The Action….

The intimacy..

And the moment….

For one night, our little parish felt like a cathedral

Thanks again to Meli for these wonderful pictures. There are over 200 images. I would suggest getting a large coffee, putting your feet up and watching them on the slideshow.

Incidentally, Meli specialises in photo documentary and is currently working on a project on female fighters. Have a look at her website.

Back to the Mass. This is my favourite photo. It captures perfectly everything that Monday night was all about. Behind all the pomp and ceremony, the excitement, the loud soaring music,  was that intimate moment with Christ:

Audio and video to follow.
