Today the two churches in our benefice dedicated to the Holy Trinity celebrate their Feast of Title, while the third, dedicated to St Barnabas, had its dedication feast day last week. The music in the morning celebrates aspects of the Holy Trinity. One of the many delights of Hildegard's Laus Trinitatis is her use of the word Creatrix rather than Creator, i.e. a female God the Creator. In the evening we have a Songs of Praise with items selected by members of the congregations.
