Hope all’s well with you as we slowly ease ourselves out of lockdown into this new form of normality.
Happy Feast Day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
(although in Scotland, celebrated liturgically tomorrow)
No singing at Mass these days, as you know, unfortunately, but you might want to sing this lovely hymn to Our Lady at home. Goes to the familiar tune of Dear St Joseph.
I do long for the day when we can sing again the parts of the Mass and hymns at Mass.
We’ll announce details this week regarding First Confessions and First Communions. The archdiocese is working on arrangements for Confirmations.
Although there is still no requirement to go to Mass, and our numbers still need to be limited, the First Confessions, First Communions and Confirmations families might want to come along to Mass even just now and again to help the children in their preparation for the Sacraments, and it’s always good that they be given experience of prayer, Mass and liturgy.
Remember, though, if you haven’t already registered for the booking system for the vigil and Sunday Masses, you would have to do that on this link. And don’t forget to bring your face covering with you.
Have a safe and happy Saturday.
