Here is the text of the votive Mass for vocations that we will offer this week on Monday at 10am. [Full link: https://fssp.org.uk/votive-mass-to-ask-for-priestly-vocations/]

Make your prayer for vocations more efficient via our international prayer network for vocations, the Confraternity of St Peter, whose chaplain in the UK & Ireland is Fr Seth Phipps, FSSP: https://fssp.org.uk/about-the-confraternity/ .


Learn to find your way through thin pages to find the Ordinary of the Mass, the Propers, the Common, and the various devotions, or how to attend a Baptism, a funeral, a wedding etc. How to prepare for Confession. Many of you have asked for a simple explanation, book in hand. Bring your missal!

This is our combined MEN’S & LADIES’ GROUP this month. We will revert to separate events next month.
