PRAYER - ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

My Jesus, I believe that You are 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 if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

Masses for Christmas and the Octave.

You will need to book a seat at the Mass of your choice this Christmas. There will be an extra Vigil Mass but that may not be enough to accommodate everyone who wants to attend. So the Bishops of England and Wales have suggested that the other Octave Masses i.e. Dec 26th until Jan 1st be considered additional Masses to celebrate Christmas liturgically. So please select only one of the following Christmas Masses and phone or email Corpus Christi or Our Lady of Lourdes. The week-end Masses for 26th/27th Dec are the Solemnity of The Holy Family and are likely to be busy so please also book a place at one of these Masses.
