We can sing again in church and we are once again using the communion rails – please feel free to stand or kneel, and to receive the Host either on the tongue or into the hand. The church is now open every day from around 8am until after the evening Mass. We shall begin to use the confessionals in church, though regular times for confessions have yet to be established – for the time being, please continue to knock at the rectory door to ask for a priest.
The international Eucharistic Congress which should have been held in Hungary last year will take place in September (in a truncated form). Because many of those who would have hoped to travel to Budapest will not be able to do so there is to be a week of Masses celebrated at Corpus Christi church, Maiden Lane (13th-18th September) culminating in a Eucharistic Procession on Sunday (19th September) which will begin at the Assumption, Warwick Street and come via Farm Street and the Ukrainian Cathedral finishing with Solemn Benediction here in Spanish Place. More details nearer the time but let’s make these events a great (and public) demonstration of our love for Jesus Christ.
In addition to live streaming our 10.30am Sunday Mass (with Choir) and 6pm Weekday Mass, we are live streaming our Saturday Holy Hour, including silent exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction.
