A Big Topping Unity Service In Monaco

Another capacity crowd filled the Big Top (Le Chapiteau - Espace Fontvielle) for this the 13th annual Ecumenical Celebration at the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival on Monday 20 January 2014.  

The celebration is the featured event in the regional observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity with representatives from the major church traditions along the Côte d'Azur in attendance.

Three circus acts participated in the service including the Spencer Hodge Award winning "Duo Have a Ball", the Bronze Clown winning "Elephantastique Family Gartner" (pictured here), and the stunning aerial duo and Gold Clown winning "Desire of Flight"

Father Ian Eglin, serving a locum with Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Nice, joined Father Walter in representing the Church of England in the clergy procession.
