Vespers Through Lent

Tonight my parish started praying vespers for the first time. We are praying them every night throughout Lent. Father couldn't make it to tonight's vespers (He was saying Mass at a missionary parish) so my dad led it. There were about 20 people who came, and I think more will tend to come as the days go on. Anyways--it was really beautiful. I've been praying vespers alone for some while now; it was very nice to pray them with others while before the Blessed Sacrament. This was just a low vespers too. We are going to begin saying "high" vespers (I think) on Sundays. With incense, and everything. I'm excited, it's so great for our/any parish to begin saying vespers. Small steps...
