Photo of High Altar; St. Oswald's of Northumbria Oratory (Chapel) at Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Priory Recently completed by Fr. Kevin is a beautiful communion rail that now resides in St. Oswald's of Northumbria Oratory. This project took over a year to complete.
The rail was modeled after the Medieval- Gothic style, which is in keeping with the chapel décor.
It even features a houseling cloth an item very prevalent on communion rails in Medieval Europe. Over the past year St. Oswald's Oratory has seen further improvements take place. The pews for our visitors, originally from the St. Joseph Chapel at St. Paul's, Portland, were renovated and restored in the priory workshop.
Currently a beautiful cast-iron and oak communion rail was constructed in the workshop, scheduled to be installed for Easter.
It is based on some medieval monastic examples and will be a wonderful piece of liturgical art.

A lectern was obtained and restored in memory of Fr. John Szala, a longtime friend of the priory. It has a special storage space for the large Bible, and Epistle and Gospel books used in our services. The Liturgy used at the Priory follows the Medieval Monastic Use utilizing elements of the Medieval English Sarum Use as well. A rich blend of plainchant, spoken word, and silence. Daily Offices are prayed according to the Medieval Monastic Use.

Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Priory Anglican Church in America Directions And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also, that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed. And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple: Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Priory Map of Raymond ME Anglican Church in America Loki The Order of St. Benedict - Worldwide Benedictine and Cistercian Site St. Joseph’s Abbey - Spencer, Ma.
