Welcome to St Chad's

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

It is wonderful to see your faces - at least that part of them not covered by a mask - back in the House of God once again! We are delighted to be able to celebrate Mass publicly once again. During the week we only have Mass on Tuesdays and Thursdays at this time. These are the two most well-attended weekday Masses and we already have stewards present here on those days. It is not necessary to reserve your place in advance for weekday Masses. The Mass times are:

Tuesday - 7:30pm (face covering required)

Thursday - 9:30am (face covering required)

It would be a shame to have no silent time for private prayer at all, so we will leave the church open for a while before and after both Masses. On Tuesday the church will be open from 7pm until 8:15pm. On Thursday the church will be open from 9am until 10:15am. This will allow you to prepare your heart for Mass with silent prayer and also to spend some time in thanksgiving after having received the Eucharist.

The times for Sunday Masses are:

Saturday - 6pm (face covering required)

Sunday - 9:45am (face covering required)

For the Sunday Masses, it is still necessary to reserve your place in advance by email because of the higher numbers in attendance. You will not receive a reply unless there is a problem. Let us continue to pray for each other.

May God bless you all.

Fr. Sean

Spiritual Communion  We are invited by Pope Francis to make an act of spiritual communion each day, expressing our wish and desire to receive Jesus into our hearts.  This is very pleasing to the Lord and the saints assure us that it brings great grace.  There was even an official Church teaching on this practice given at the Council of Trent.  Here is a prayer to use: 

My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I long for You in my soul.  Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I wish my Lord to receive you, with the purity, humility and devotion with which your Most Holy Mother received you, with the spirit and fervour of the saints.  Amen.
