“SS Peter & Paul: Wednesday 29th June

There has, in recent years, been a shift of some of the ‘Holy Days of Obligation’ to the Sunday in an attempt to enhance our ability to celebrate them more fully.

Alongside our Sunday obligation, ‘Holy Days of Obligation’ help us honour the principal mysteries of Our Lord as well as other Feasts that define the life of the Catholic Church.

One of these feasts is St Peter and St Paul, the two apostolic foundations of the Church, and this ‘holy day’ remains on its proper day.

As our practice of midweek ‘holy days’ has been much reduced in recent years, we might need a little reminder about our need to attend Mass this day. It is also a wonderful opportunity to give witness to our faith, and so it’s important that we plan when and how we will fit our working day around Holy Mass.

Inside the newsletter, on the Mass intention insert, you will see that there are seven Parish Masses.

It is permissible to fulfil your obligation by attending a vigil Mass on the evening (Tuesday) before:

Vigil Masses

7.15pm at St Bernadette’s and 7.30pm at St Theodore’s

Day Masses

7.30am at St Edward’s, 10am at Our Lady’s Church, 11am at Christ the Lord,

12.15 at the Friary and 8pm at the Friary

7am, 8am, 10.30am (Latin), 12:30pm, 1.05pm & 5.30pm (with choir)
