Overwhelm At OLA

Overwhelm, the school’s music ministry team, are regular visitors to Our Lady of the Assumption Parish and were delighted to join the parishioners and pupils from St. Gregory’s Primary School once more this weekend.

During the Mass for the 3rd Sunday of Lent, Overwhelm played and sang really well, mixing some old favourites like Shine, Jesus, Shine with a new setting of the psalm of the day.

Father Stephen did a rather splendid magic trick in his sermon with a tube and coloured cloths which blew everyone’s mind as he explained how Lent, Holy Week and Easter are connected.

Overwhelm took the opportunity to present a freshly commissioned statue of St. Julie to the parish community in recognition of the Golden Anniversary of the canonisation of St. Julie.

In a wonderful coincidence, a visiting member of the congregation came up afterwards to say that she had actually been in St. Peter’s in Rome for the canonisation on Friday, 22nd June, 1969!
