St Augustine Week is well under way and Ramsgate is celebrating one of its most important historic figures.
On Sunday 25th a concert was held, sung with very high musical standards by Victoria Consort, and was enjoyed by all who attended.
On Monday 26th Bishop Athanasius Schneider from Kazakhstan celebrated Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the Shrine, and preached a sermon which inspired many. He was found to be a humble and holy man, who was very friendly to all. He seemed very interested to be toured around the site by the Rector, Fr Marcus Holden, before Mass.
The rest of the week has particular highlights, including a celebratory procession to St Augustine’s Cross, Ebbsfleet, from the Hugin Viking Ship; a tour of St Augustine’s stained glass; and a lecture on Pugin’s relationship to industrial production by Dr Jamie Jacobs.
All are welcome.
