Thank you on behalf of all to all our stewards whose kind vigilance allows us all to use St Mary’s safely for everybody’s benefit.

To receive Holy Communion: one must be a Catholic, in state of grace, one-hour fasting at least. In the EF liturgy, Holy Communion is received kneeling (unless unable to) and always on the tongue. Thank you in advance.

Modesty in church: please cover your bodies at least down to elbows and below knees; no tight or see-through garments. ‘Sunday best’ on Sundays and feast.

Sanctify the Day of the Lord! How best? Further to devoutly attending Holy Mass, there is no more Catholic way than to attend Sung Vespers (cf Baronius pp. 103-111), the official prayer of the Church, that is, the Mystical Bride of Christ, followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, thus adoring the Eucharistic Bridegroom. This takes place every Sunday at St Mary’s, from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Confessions are heard as usual from 5:30pm to 6:00pm, with Holy Mass following at 6:00pm.

Shrine Directory: Email Fr Stewart (astewart@olgseminary.org) your profession, trade or skills with the contact details you would like to be included on a printed booklet to be shared with parishioners. A good opportunity to support fellow Catholics in these difficult times.

All Saints educational event for (a limited number of) young children and parents after 11am Mass on Sunday 1st Nov. Register with A. Kahn penketh.kahns@gmail.com.

 On All Souls’ Day (Nov. 2nd ) a plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls in Purgatory, is granted to those who visit a Catholic church and there recite one Our Father and one Creed. On all the days from November 1st through November 8th inclusive, a plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Poor Souls in Purgatory, is granted to those who visit a cemetery and pray even if only mentally for the departed. There must be one visit for each day one seeks to gain the indulgence; one visit will not apply for several days. Any public cemetery with Christian tombs will do. The nearest one is 5 minutes walk from St Mary’s: St Elphin’s, Church Street, WA1 2TL.

Conditions for both indulgences: 1. Only one plenary indulgence can be granted per day. 2. It is necessary to be in the state of grace, at least by completion of the work. 3. Freedom from attachment to sin, even venial sin, is necessary; otherwise the indulgence is only partial. (By this is meant attachment to a particular sin, not sin in general.) 4. Holy Communion must be received each time the indulgence is sought. 5. Prayers must be recited for the traditional intentions of the Holy Father on each day the indulgence is sought. No particular prayers are prescribed. One Our Father and one Hail Mary suffice, or other suitable prayers. 6. One must be absolved in confession the fortnight before or following.

Children Education Meeting at St Mary’s. As you know, families meet every Wednesday afternoon at Priory Court for educational activities. The purchase of the new building and the growing needs of families lead us to envisage more.

Priestly Vocations: 38 Second Year FSSP seminarians tonsured on Sat. 17 October in Bavaria and on Sat. 24 October in America, including Tom, Henry and Conan from the UK and Ireland: pray for them.
