Pictures from the Spiritual Life


Welcome to our place of worship, the Church of St. Mary and the Angels. If you cannot worship with us in bodily form, please reflect with us here. We hope this might be a humble place of retreat and refreshment. Soon we will also offer a video stream of our Sunday Masses .... eventually our daily Masses.

Nota Bene: We recommend that you download the free app Vox. (iTunes, so keen to stamp out pirated music, that it seems to reject any source it does not know!) If you need a media player for Windows, try VLC. We grant all those who follow our reflections permission to download and hear them and to pass on our life in the Word to their friends. Pax et bonum!
