Drawing in Church 3 - Hail Mary. Hail Mary, full of grace.

Day three

A Lady Chapel is a traditional term for a chapel dedicated to Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary. They always seem special in any Church I visit. It was in lady chapels, towards the close of the Middle Ages, that innovations in church music were allowed, as only the strict chant was heard in the Choir.

For me, most Sunday mornings at 8am, I come to the Lady Chapel here for Said Holy Communion. We are not a large congregation, however I always feel we are an appreciative one. The 8am service is so typically ‘purposeful’ of the Anglican rite. Short, sharp and to the point.

Hail Mary. Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
