Yesterday evening, we had veneration of the true cross at the church of St Charles in Hull. That church is lucky to posess a fragment of the cross that St Helena found in the Holy Land and is believed to be the actual cross on which Our Lord hung. It is housed in a superb reliquary, and I hope that someone might be able to provide a photograph of this.
The veneration followed a Solemn Mass in the usus antiquior. A marvelous set of red High Mass vestments belonging to St charles Church was used; and, although incomplete, they looked very well in this ornate Georgean church. Music was provided by the Rudgate Singers, with Robert O'Farrell playing the organ.
