 Proposed experiment during October.

Please consider ‘trying’ one of the ‘new’ Masses during October in the hope that everyone looking for Mass is able to find it. N.B. Review of experiment at end of October, and then see what should happen.

Just for now, Holy Cross is reopening for Mass, Confirmation and RCIA.

and all the other things that have not happened as they should are in hand. These include First Communions, UCM, choirs (suspended by the Government), Prayer groups…and much more. A little prayer will help for the success in celebrating Mass publicly, and then we can move on from there.
