Subdeaconing

Here I am subdeaconing for the first time yesterday...Chanting the epistle; holding the Gospel book for the deacon; here's our sanctuary; here's my favorite station of the Cross (the whole set will be refurbished by next Ash Wednesday thanks to a generous donor); here's a Baptism rite in progress (font is behind the celebrant; itscarved gothic cover has retracted into the ceiling); the Scotts and friends; wish I had a jacket with me, but I needed to cool down.
