Mass & Services During This Difficult Time
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, so many aspects of our lives have been changing. This includes the ways in which we publicly express our faith.
Mass (in English) is live-streamed from St Marie’s Cathedral at 8am each weekday and Saturday morning, and at 11am on Sundays. A Slovak Mass will be live-streamed at 3pm each Sunday. We warmly invite you to spiritually join in with these celebrations.
You are encouraged to make a Spiritual Communion during these difficult times, since Holy Communion is not currently possible. To make a Spiritual Communion, recite this prayer of Saint Alphonsus Liguori with a sincere desire in your heart:
“My Jesus, I believe you are present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire you in my soul. Since I cannot receive you in Holy Communion now, at least spiritually come to 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, (make an intention here). Amen”

These are the ways in which we will sanctify Sunday, and indeed every day, until the health restrictions have been lifted.
