ODE TO THE CLEANING LADIES


Friday mornings around ten, the cleaning angels appear.

This commitment has been for many a year.

They prepare God’s house with loving care

for a warming welcome when we gather for prayer.


The kneelers go up, stray papers collected,

floors swept and vacuumed, no corner neglected.

The candles are trimmed, the altar liturgically dressed

and for special occasions flowers arranged on request.


Whether sweeping a floor or dusting a pew

someone always takes time to ask “How’s things with you?”

You know they are happy to lend you an ear

or a comforting shoulder to shed a tear.


They tackle the job with genuine pleasure

but the friendships they’ve made are what they treasure.

So when the tasks are completed and our Church is prepared

they adjourn next door where lunch and stories are shared.
