Live Streaming of Mass Sunday 16th August – The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Sunday 16th August at 11.00am – the stream goes live 10 minutes beforehand. Here is the YouTube link . As we are not currently allowed to have congregational singing, the mass will be said, with the organ playing at appropriate moments. Please see the standard mass card in case you need it for the words of the responses, creed etc. For those watching online the act of spiritual communion will be said after the priest has received Holy Communion.

Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You
Are truly present in the Most
Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
And I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot, at this moment receive
you Sacramentally, come at least
spiritually into my heart. I embrace You
as being already there and unite myself
wholly to You. Never permit me to be
separated from You. Amen.

Communion of the Sick
At present we are not allowed to visit the sick and housebound except in danger of death. Hopefully this will change soon.

Any financial support would be extremely welcome. Here is the link to donate online, if you prefer. Thank you.

With all best wishes and prayers,

Fr David
