Fr Mike had devised services of interest to us all -
For these services we sang “the Gloria” slightly differently, with a children’s percussion section and some of us clapping our hands in places (and some of us wishing we wouldn’t!) Not the quietest of services then, with enthusiastic youngsters on cymbals and drums, and we even sang the Caribbean style Lords Prayer (which I loved!)
