Mass at Ängelholm

This was a surprise. There isn't a Catholic church there, so the priest comes from Helsingborg and says mass on Sundays at 2.00 pm in the Rönne Church (Baptist).

What did we get? A very well attended service, with a full church. The mass was in Swedish and the Ordinary was sung in Latin, Gregorian Chant, Mass VIII. And as usual in Sweden, the congregation was from a diverse range of places. All the same, everyone joined in the singing.

They are hoping to get a church of their own. There is a lesson in this.
