Chanting in the Church Car Park

As I sat in the Presbytery on Friday afternoon I could hear singing - chanting - coming from somewhere. Near the Church. In the Car Park ...

... it proved to be six members of trhe Ethiopean Orthodox Church which meet in our Church each Sunday afternoon. All in their early twenties, thousands of miles from home, singing in the car park of a English Catholic Parish Church in the City Centre of Stoke-on-Trent, a former mining and pottery city, struggling with the many problems of urban life.

How remarkable. How wonderful!
