This is what the vestry looked like this morning:
Well, sort of. Today was ‘low Sunday’, so the choir was allowed a day-off after Holy Week madness, and the Jonathan and Sheila were on holiday. We had a baptism today which included an extra clergy and the new lay reader was standing in as sub-deacon. Also, nothing in the vestry had been laid out over the weekend. It was a bit manic this morning preparing for the service, and it took all of us whispering to each other to make sure the service ran smoothly and in order. Thank goodness Sheila will be back next week. We fall apart without her!
