Girls to the fore

I WAS delighted to read in the parish magazine of Christ the King, Cockfosters, the following on girl altar servers: "Further to letters in our December issue, I would report a recent sighting in the Franciscan (I Fran) Church in Venice where, on Palm Sunday, I observed two liturgically clad, pigtailed angels among, the halfdozen servers at a parochial Mass and who also helped to collect up our offerings. The voices and music of local school children supported occasionally by a glorious operatic male tenor heard before Titian's stunning Assumption in the magnificance of this giant Venetian Gothic church confirmed for me that I could only be in Italy".

was equally pleasect to see recently that the Vatican is considering altar girls, due to pressure from the church in the. United States.
