Strangest Things You Find In London Pubs (2)...

Following the success of my last "Strangest Things" post, I thought I'd add this to the collection. Of course, technically this is not a London Pub (it's the Parish Club) and there was no biretta in evidence, but I'm not sure when the next photo opportunity will present itself...

So, here we have the "Blessing of Beer" according to the Roman Ritual... (Fr. Tim was blessing the Master Brew Real Ale, not the Novus Ordo Eurofizz, just in case you were wondering...)

... let's just hope that none of the Holy Water actually fell into anyone's pint...

UPDATE: Fr. Tim has very kindly posted the prayers.

So you have a pub in (at? near? under?) your Church? What a great idea. Sometimes we have had donuts and coffee after a Mass but this is a much better idea.

The large hall (which houses the Parish Club) is beside the presbytery and the priest's garage. The church car park is just outside it.

Coffee and biscuits are available directly after the 10:30am Sunday Mass, in the large hall... and the club opens up shortly after that...
