As I am about to become the chaplain to Chavagnes School in September, I took the opportunity when on the Pilgrimage to get to know some of the boys and masters. They are a fantastic lot, and walked and sang well. I’ll tell you in a year’s time, if I still think that they are quite so fantastic!
It is a pleasure, then, to see that I will be not only the chaplain to the school, but also to the scout troop.
Scouts in France are quite extraordinary (not necessarily in the liturgical sense). You have scouting monks and the Scouts d’Europe and goodness knows who else. You could take over the world with the French scouts.
Hmmm… I need to decide where to invade first.
