As reported elsewhere in the UK in recent years, fewer people are attending this late Mass (we started at 11pm). It was standing room only at the more child-friendly 6.30. For all that, there was a good atmosphere at this celebration: everyone sang beautifully and the church look wonderful. Happy Christmas, everyone!
