Our parish will broadcast Mass every day and, in addition, one of our churches will be open for an hour of private prayer. It is not advisable that we meet as a congregation, both arriving and leaving together. However, with staggered arrivals and departures, there is greater scope for keeping safe during a Holy Hour. If you choose to come to the church, please make sure that you follow all the necessary precautions. 

Please note there is no Vespers this evening, 10th January.

New Year’s Eve Prayer Vigil.

 

As 2020 becomes 2021, so the parish is hosting a prayer vigil led by Fr Matt. 

From 7pm – 9pm the vigil will include two talks, time for private prayer, the singing of the Te Deum and Benediction. 

Participants may watch the proceedings on-line using our YouTube channel, or may come to the church in person– so long as social distancing is maintained. You may choose to participate in the whole event, or any part of it. As an outline approximate timings are:

7:00pm – Talk 1.

7:30pm – Exposition.

8:00pm – Talk 2.

8:45pm – Singing the Te Deum and Benediction.

(The ‘Te Deum’ is an ancient hymn of praise and is sung on various days of the year; including all solemnities, at the ordination of a bishop, the election of a Pope and the final day of the year. In the latter case, a plenary indulgence may be obtained when sung publically. A metrical version, often sung in English, is the hymn ‘Holy God we Praise Thy Name’)
