FROM FR TIM
FROM FR TIM:
WEEKEND MASS - SUMMER TIMETABLE: As in previous years, the 9:00 am and 11: 00 am Sunday Masses will be replaced with a 10:00 am Mass. The 5:30 pm Mass on Saturday evening remains unchanged.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be a Vigil Mass on Tuesday at 7:00 pm due to the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary being on Wednesday. This will replace the usual 12noon Mass on Tuesday.
ADOREMUS: The week the schools reassemble is the week leading up to the Eucharistic Congress and we have two special fringe events at Bishop Eton. A Holy Hour with children and families on Friday 7 September at 6 pm and a lunchtime event following the noon Mass on Saturday 8 September. There are leaflets with details of all the events across the city at the back of the church this weekend. Our Junior Justice and Peace Group are already gearing up for the family event. I am hoping that all our altar servers will take part and help with a procession through the grounds (weather permitting).
THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: For anyone interested, it is now possible to book directly to be a delegate at the Eucharistic Congress. Tickets are still available to the Saturday Echo Arena event at £43.50. Please go to the website: http://www.jumpdp.com/adoremus2018
EVENTS SUPPORTING ADORAMUS: There is a parallel programme of events supporting Adoremus from 7-9 September in various locations. See the poster in the porch or pick up a leaflet or visit the pages on the website, just click here
LIVING WELL WITH DEMENTIA - DEMENTIA AWARENESS SESSION:
GOSPEL CONCERT: Saturday 8 September in The Auditorium, Echo Arena at 8:00 pm called ‘Lost and Found’.

EXPOSITION AND BENEDICTION: In August the Sunday Gospels are taken from St John and form a timely reminder that Christ is the living bread which nourishes us with his Word and Body. It is a perfect time to prepare for the Eucharistic Congress (7-9 September). Each Friday Evening in July and August (6:30-7: 30 pm) we continue Eucharistic Adoration at St Mary’s. Do Join Us! N.B There is no Exposition here on Friday 7 September (but there will be a special Adoration session for families that night at Bishop Eton as part of the Adoremus Fringe event)
