As far as I can tell, the parish of the Holy Family, Great Saffron Hill, no longer exists, so there is no 2017 schedule to measure against this one.  I have left this description of parish life almost exactly as Fr Biemans must have provided it to Messrs Burns and Lambert just over 150 years ago.  If you have read this far do say an "Eternal Rest" for Frs Biemans and Blake.
