In March last year, we began to record Mass each Saturday afternoon which was made available each Sunday morning. This has been very successful and during the initial months of the pandemic, when we were unable to celebrate Mass publicly, it was the only way in which people could remain in contact with the parishes and about 800 people viewed each week. As the government restrictions have begun to change, and people’s confidence has begun to grow, the number of people attending Mass has also increased.
As a result, it seems a good time to review our Sunday Mass provision. You will have seen that we now have a Mass at Christ the Cornerstone each Saturday evening, are going to restore Sunday evening Mass at St Augustine’s and have begun to stream Mass live at 8.30am. Therefore we will stop specifically recording an extra Mass, but this newsletter will continue to be distributed on a Sunday morning with a link to the 8.30am Mass which can be viewed either live or later in the day. Can I take this opportunity to thank all our musicians, readers and servers who have helped week by week to enrich these Masses.
Thank you, with blessings,
