Mothering Sunday at Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary–Ottawa

Today, the Fourth Sunday of Lent, we celebrated  Mothering Sunday.

Mass began with a blessing of flowers and the simnel cake.

Our priest Fr. Doug Hayman wore rose vestments, and many of us wore pink, or magenta, or salmon in solidarity!

We had an even more lavish spread than usual because of Mothering Sunday.

Our Mother-of-the-Year this year is Carolyn Hayman, who did the honors pouring tea and coffee from our fancy silver tea service, and cut (and probably baked?) the simnel cake.

A wonderful occasion and a time of great joy and thanksgiving in our parish.
