Today I was inducted as a member of the Society of Mary at the second Saturday of the May Festival of Our Lady. St Thomas's, Huron Street hosted the Solemn High Mass and Procession, followed by a luncheon and ending with Rosary and Benediction.
The Mass was a setting by Giles Bryant, and was sung by the choir of Royal St George's College (the choir school of the Cathedral Church of St James), which was quite a treat. It ended with a congregational procession to "The happy birds Te Deum sing," and the May Crowning.
The rosary was chanted antiphonally by gender, and I regret to say that the hymn tunes at Benediction were not the proper plainsong ones.
At the offertory, I submitted my new parishioner form for St Thomas's. My first Sunday there will be the Patronal Festival in July.
