  • To much smoke!
    Recently the Order of the Holy Cross (An Anglican Benedictine order) held it's Retreat at St St Andrew's. On Saturday the thurible was lit... and set off the smoke alarms. The wonderful Taupo Fire Brigade came to check that everything was as it should be (and it was) and the service got underway again. This time with only the scent of the incense.
