Images of Christmas at Blackfriars

Wednesday, January 08, 2014
This time of year is often a more quiet time in a Dominican priory, with some of the friars visiting family in the period just after Christmas Day. Here is a selection of images of the festive period from Oxford taken over the last few weeks.

At the end of term, the Godzdogz team visited the village of East Hendred for some walking in the countryside, and to visit the local churches and other attractions.

Behind the scenes, the sacristy team spent time preparing everything for the Christmas liturgy, including lots of cleaning of the Church and items to be used in processions and in the aesthetics of the sanctuary and Church worship spaces. 

Friars were working hard through Christmas, organising and preparing for the Christmas celebrations that took place after the midnight Mass on Christmas Day.
