|Pugin Altar, St Augustine's. Solihull|
The Pugin altar above is sadly not the one that is used - there is not enough room around it so Mass is celebrated at the newer main altar. Bizarrely, this older altar faced south west, and no-one is sure why it was built this way. St Augustine's is described as Pugin's first church and it is certainly the oldest of Pugin's existing churches, even though the church has been modernised several times to accomodate greater numbers, For more on the history of the church, please see this link.

|The Annunciation by Edward Burne-Jones|
I have had no word from the Oratory but I assume there will be a low Mass, possibly a Missa Cantata, at the normal time of 5.45pm.
The painting of the Annunciation on the left is by Edward Burne-Jones and is located at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
