Gracious Fruits of the Holy Mass

online adorationEvery Holy Mass, heard with devotion, produces in our souls marvellous effects, abundant spiritual and material graces which we, ourselves, do not know … It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!

Holy Masses

It’s truly great news that are now permitted to open the church again for Sunday and weekday Masses. Remember, if you are shielding, self-isolating or concerned about public places, please do
stay at home and be safe! However, if you intend to come to Mass, please:

  • Follow the guidance of the stewards for one-way entrance/exit through the church
  • Be sure to use the hand sanitiser provided on entering and leaving
  • DO NOT come to Mass if you have flu-like symptoms
  • Please be sure to sit 2 metres apart, except where you are with people from one household
  • Holy Communion will be distributed in one kind only, on the hand. The priest will explain the procedure to you at the appropriate time

The Sunday Obligation remains suspended, so there is no sin in not attending Sunday Mass. Please, therefore, think about spreading out your Mass attendance to allow the largest number of people to be accommodated within the social distancing arrangements.

You are, of course, free to bring these to Mass and use them if you feel it is safer. Each person will be respected for the decisions that they make in this matter. However, it would
not be appropriate to receive Holy Communion while wearing gloves.

When you come to Mass, kindly bring, if you are able, some packets of anti-bacterial wet wipes, to assist with supplies for sanitising the church.

Thanks from Gary

Thank you all so much for your kindness, hospitality and prayers during this month of pastoral experience at St Mary of the Angels. It has certainly been fruitful as well as highly enjoyable. You will all be in my prayers and do continue to pray for me, the seminarians of our diocese, and for many more vocations. God bless, Gary Carter.

Don’t Neglect the Blessed Sacrament!

Good friends find pleasure in one another’s company. Let us know pleasure in the company of our best friend, a friend who can do everything for us, a friend who loves us beyond measure. Here in the Blessed Sacrament we can talk to him straight from the heart. We can open our souls to him, tell him what we need, beg him for powerful graces. We are perfectly free to approach the King of the universe with full confidence and without fear.

St Alphonsus Ligouri, 1696-1787
