Feastday at Farnborough

Had a very sober feastday celebrations of Mary Help of Christians at Farnborough.  A Mass (part of the retreat) in the afternoon and a solemn supper in the evening.  Don't remember a boisterous celebration of this feast except when away from the formation houses!!  Being holidays there is hardly anyone at home this time of the year.  The only place where it would be a busy day was in the Provincial house.  That's mainly because of the perpetual profession in the evening and the first professions at Manoharabad in the morning.

The evening supper table was well laid out with name cards and a menu card too. Am told that it was all the doing of Br Michael Delmer, the former headteacher here at Farnborough. He also added a couple of old photos of Pallaskenry, Ireland, (the former aspirantate of the Salesians) and of Farnborogh itself.
