Biretta - First Outing

Wore the new Biretta for the first time at St John's today - what did the Congregation think? Greeted with a round of applause - result.

Ovens & Birettas

 The Postman made some interesting deliveries this week the first was a new heating element for the Rectory Oven which had failed just before the Annual Epiphany Party - it made the catering especially challenging! The new one from an on-line company called espares arrived promptly and took less than 10 minutes to fit, normal service has been restored and Sunday Roast is back on the menu.

The next package to arrive was a Biretta, a gift from one of my lovely Parishioners. I look forward to wearing it. 
I understand that the rubrics of St Mary's Cathedral Glasgow  state that the Biretta is to be worn when it is snowing so with the current weather it may well get an outing tomorrow.
