Vespers at St Wilfrid's in York

Yesterday, which was the first Sunday of Advent saw Vespers introduced at St Wilfrid's Church in York. It was at 6pm, and was followed by Benediction. There was some nervousness amongst the servers and the choir, as for many it was a new experience. However, it all went well on the night. Including clergy, servers, choristers and general congregation, there were about thirty present, which was pleasing, as we had no idea how popular it would be. From now on, there will be Vespers and Benediction every Sunday evening at 6pm.

How wonderful! Deo gratias.

How many were at the EF mass? Was the time change helpful?
