Spiritual Communion Holy Mass

With the threat of COVID-19 with us and the closing of our Parish Churches for Holy Mass we have to find other ways to celebrate Mass. From the CBCEW website “The celebration of Mass, Sunday by Sunday and day by day, will take place without a public congregation. Knowing that the Mass is being celebrated; joining in spiritually in that celebration; watching the live-streaming of the Mass; following its prayers at home; making an act of spiritual communion: this is how we share in the Sacrifice of Christ in these days. These are the ways in which we will sanctify Sunday, and indeed every day. We want everyone to understand that in these emergency circumstances, and for as long as they last, the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days is removed. This is, without doubt, the teaching of the Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2181). This pandemic is the ‘serious reason’ why this obligation does not apply at this time.” However, many priests and bishops are streaming Mass from their churches and private chapels. We can, therefore, still gather for Mass – just as a virtual rather than physical congregation. Canon Lordan will be carrying out private mass everyday where you can make an act of spiritual communion at the same time. Please see this page when Mass cannot be celebrated publicly. Bishop Peter will be celebrating mass on YouTube, Diocease Facebook page and the Diocesan Website.
